Brandy Crusta

  • 2 oz brandy (1757 Brandy)
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1⁄2 oz ginger syrup
  • Ginger beer
  • 1 slice candied ginger
  • 1 lemon peel garnish
  • sugar crust rim

Crust the rim of an old fashioned glass with sugar. Mix all ingredients (except the ginger beer) in a shaker. Strain carefully into the old fashioned glass, so as not to disturb the sugar rim. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lemon peel and ginger slice.

Extra points if you take a bit of lemon peel and line the interior of the glass (use a coupe or similar) and pour through that.
