Brandy Crusta

  • Servings: Makes 1 Drink

The Brandy Crusta was invented by Joseph Santini at the City Exchange bar and café in New Orleans around 1850. One of the drink's distinguishing characteristics is its long lemon-peel garnish; it's easily created using a vegetable peeler. (Crusta refers to moistening the rim of a glass, coating it with sugar and letting it dry into a crust.)
