Rum Crusta

The Brandy Crusta is a classic cocktail traced back to Joseph Santini (circa 1840) who was a celebrated bartender and caterer in New Orleans (see Leo Engels, American and other Drinks, 1878). This classic recipe has of course evolved over time, and I have seen many modern variations all over the internet. The recipe I am sharing below is based upon the 1878 variation of the Crusta developed by Leo Engels who almost certainly used Santini’s 1840 Brandy Crusta recipe as his inspiration for the Rum Crusta. (see the Leo Engels Brandy Crusta recipe here)
