Crusta

A 19th Century New Orleans drink that featured a sugar-rimmed stem glass garnished with a long spiral of lemon zest around the whole inside rim of the glass. The drink could be made with any spirits, the most common of which were gin, brandy, whiskey and rum, mixed with lemon juice, simple syrup, bitters, and a sweet liqueur (such as maraschino), shaken and served over crushed ice.
