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
