Heritage Hill Old Fashioned

Ingredients Available at Martha’s Vineyard

This (dare we say neighborhood) classic is made by first muddling sugar with bitters and water, then adding Martha’s Select Barrel Traverse City Whiskey Company Bourbon. Garnish with orange zest and cherry. The favorite cocktail on ‘the Hill.’


  • 2 ounces of Traverse City Whiskey Co. Martha’s Bourbon
  • 2 small sugar cubes (or 1/2 ounce simple syrup)
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters (or substitute with chocolate or walnut bitters)
  • Orange twist and/or cherry for garnish

Muddle the sugar cubes with bitters and a teaspoon of water, add a large ice cube, pour in Martha’s Barrel Whiskey from Traverse City Whiskey Company, and stir! Finish with an orange twist, cherry, or both.
