Pear Brandy Crusta

Pear Brandy Crusta

To celebrate the Repeal of Prohibition Day on December 5th, the NYC bespoke cocktail bar, Mulberry Project has developed the Pear Brandy Crusta cocktail. With brandy so luxurious during Prohibition, it was hard to find so was used by the rich as a marker of their social and financial status. Said to be enjoyed by F. Scott Fitzgerald whilst he wrote the era defining novel The Great Gatsby, the Pear Brandy Crusta contrasts the warmth of the brandy with the bitterness of the grapefruit for a retro infused taste.
