Dickensian Villain | Cocktail Party

Dickensian Villain

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
