To prepare the Brandy Crusta, you first need a shaker and a jigger. In the jigger you can measure out all the ingredients and then pour them into the cocktail shaker. Also add some ice to the shaker so that the cocktail can be cooled down. Now shake well for about 15 to 25 seconds and then strain into a pre-chilled martini glass (without ice). Finally, garnish with a lemon zest and serve or enjoy yourself.

The brandy cocktail has a pleasant flavour profile that is captivated by the interplay of the brandy (and alcoholic notes) with fruity and sweet notes. Thanks to the use of cocktail bitters, the drink gets its very own note that makes it stand out very much from other drinks. Just try the cocktail yourself and let its unique taste convince you!
