|1||ds||Bitters, Boker's (or Angostura)|
|1⁄2||t||Lemon juice (as garnish)|
|1⁄4||c||Sugar (to rim glass, as garnish)|
|1⁄2||Lemon (peeled in one spiral, as garnish)|
Moisten rim of coupe with lemon juice. Rim glass with sugar. Add a small lump of ice to the glass, and insert peel, which should protrude over the top of the glass. Stir the cognac, curacao and bitters together, and strain into the prepared glass.
The Brandy Crusta is a precursor to the sidecar. The original poster had the cocktail as 2 oz cognac, 1/2 oz each Curacao and lemon juice, 1/4 oz simple, and 2 dashes of Boker's.
Jerry Thomas says the drink was invented by one "Santina, a celebrated Spanish caterer".
