Dickensian Villain | Cocktail Party

Dickensian Villain

Dickensian Villain cocktail with rye whiskey, pineapple rum, grenadine, and Fernet-Branca

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
