Brandy Crusta @ TBI Boozy Fridays vol.13

“Boozy Fridays present Brandy Crusta cocktail”

The Brandy Crusta first appeared in New Orleans, around 1850. It was the creation of Joseph Santini, a restauranter who once managed the City Exchange (………). The first recorded recipe for the Brandy Crusta appears in Jerry Thomas’s 1862 book on mixology;  it calls for brandy, curacao , bitters, simple syrup, and lemon juice. The drink was served in a glass with sugared rim and a spiral of lemon peel that covered the interior of the glass. Some later recipes for the Brandy Crusta substituted maraschino liqueur for the curacao.
