It is a refreshing and balanced blend of Cointreau, lemon juice, sugar syrup, cognac, and a dash of Angostura bitters for added complexity. The addition of cherry liqueur gives this drink a touch of sweetness and a beautiful reddish hue. This cocktail is traditionally served in a distinctive curved glass with a sugar rim, which gives it the name "crusta." The combination of sweet, citrus, and herbal flavors makes the Brandy Crusta a perfect drink for any occasion. Its rich history and unique flavor profile have made it a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts around the world.
