Truman's Old Fashioned?

Someone reminded me that Harry Truman was a famous Old Fashioned lover. A little Googling unearthed this alleged Truman recipe.

I think I'll miss the muddling, but I'll give it a shot.

* Tiny amount of sugar
* Generous bitters
* A little water
* A little cherry juicy (1/4 teaspoon or so)
* Mix it up
* Add ice
* Jack Daniels (he used green label)
* Top with cherry and unmuddled slice of orange

Truman would denounce "overly" sweet old fashions as "fruit punch," so if you want to make something he might enjoy, be stingy with the sugar and orange peel. Heavy on the whiskey.
