I love a nice Cognac cocktail in the winter! Here’s a classic that you don’t see around much that’s worth a try. The Brandy Crusta is a 19th-century cocktail that was the predecessor to the Sidecar.  Like many great cocktails, it originated in New Orleans, so Peychaud’s is the perfect bitters for this concoction.

  • 5 parts cognac
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 2 parts lemon juice
  • 1 part maraschino liqueur
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 spiral lemon


Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with sugar. Garnish with lemon spiral.
