Brandy Crusta

The Brandy Crusta was created by Joseph Santini, an Italian bartender in New Orleans, during the 1850s. The original recipe calls for only small measurements of both lemon juice and gum syrup (sugar syrup with the addition of gum arabic to add viscosity), resulting in an unbalanced drink. The recipe below is a modern, adapted recipe, which has more lemon juice and uses maraschino liqueur in place of the original gum syrup.
