Cocktail Recipe: Brandy Crusta

An old Jerry Thomas recipe we found in the brand new PDT Cocktail Book, which calls it “the grandaddy of the Sidecar.” Well, you know how we do love a Sidecar. We now also love a Brandy Crusta.

The recipe, after the jump.

Brandy Crusta
First served by Joseph Santini of the New Orleans Exchange Bar, according to the PDT cocktail book.

2 ounces Hine VSOP cognac
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 ounce Marie Brrizard orange curacao

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled, sugar-rimmed wine glass filled with an entire lemon and orange peel. (Obviously we did not do this but it sounds lovely!)
