2 oz Pineapple rum (I used Plantation Stiggins)
1⁄4 oz Overproof rum (I used Plantation OFTD)
1⁄4 oz Passion fruit syrup
1⁄4 oz Vanilla syrup
1⁄4 oz Allspice Dram
1 ds Absinthe (I used 10 drops)
1 twst Orange peel (For garnish)

Build in a double old fashioned glass, add a big ice cube, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with orange oil from a twist.


A guest at Drink wanted an Old Fashioned but fruity, and I decided to take things in a tropical bend instead of going an apple brandy and grenadine direction. To a base of Plantation's pineapple rum, I sweetened things with Don's Spices #2 (vanilla syrup and allspice dram) and passion fruit syrup and used a bitters trinity of Angostura, mole, and absinthe. Since the volume was a quarter ounce shy of 3 ounces, I supplemented it with a splash of Plantation OFTD Rum to round out the mix. That guest and the two guests that I made it for later that evening enjoyed it so much that I made it for myself once I got home. For a name, I dubbed it the Pickwick Club after the social venue in the Charles Dicken's novel that inspired the rum's creation in the first place.
