The Brandy Crusta Equal Parts - A Bartending Podcast About Cocktails

    • Food

The guys talk about the Brandy Crusta, a cocktail neither of them had ever made. Read about in Jerry Thomas’s book and Imbibe. The crusta launched a lot of cocktails, but it is a simple drink. Created as a blend of two worlds: punches, which are a combination of spirit, sweet, spice, water, served in a big bowl; and cocktails: spirit, bitter and water. Adding the lemon juice into the cocktail was the innovation. Created out of New Orleans, an amazing cocktail town.
