On cocktails, FDR and absolute sacrilege

Our neighbor and good friend Eric Felten writes a wonderful weekly column for the Saturday Wall Street Journal on spirits and cocktails.  My wife Caitlin and I participated in a little experiment for today's column, creating our own and updated version - with a little help - of FDR's drink, the Old Fashioned.  It is a lovely piece, with lots of photos, so if you can read it online or in the paper it will be worth the extra effort.  Feedback on the FDR-inspired cocktail itself is welcome, of course.
