The Dickensian Villain is an inventive twist on the Old Fashioned template from Danielle Crouch and Allan Katz at Here’s Looking At You in Los Angeles.
The name is a reference to Plantation Pineapple Stiggins’ Fancy rum, a delicious pineapple rum named for the hard-drinking evangelist mooch in Charles Dickens’ The Pickwick Papers, who was described as having a particular fondness for the stuff.
Add the ingredients to a short glass and top with ice – preferably one large cube or sphere. Stir until chilled. Express the oils from an orange twist over the drinks, and discard the twist.
