NOTES

Crusta is a name for a small group of classic cocktails. In their composition, crustas are similar to a sour, they contain a spirit, lemon juice as well as sugar or sugar syrup and / or liqueur and are also often rounded off with cocktail bitters. A special feature is a wide sugar rim on the glass, the eponymous crust, and a long, wide-cut spiral made of lemon or orange peel that is placed in the glass.
