Maiden's Blush cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

Maiden’s Blush

Maiden's Blush cocktail with gin and triple sec

Yet another underappreciated classic from Harry Craddock’s 1930 tome, The Savoy Cocktail Book. We prefer the updated version in Gaz Regan’s The Joy of Cocktails, which bumps up the sour element a bit.

The Maiden’s Blush is the sister of the Maiden’s Prayer, also found in Craddock’s book. Here, grenadine softens the bite of the gin, where the other uses orange juice and a more balanced ratio.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
