Maiden’s Blush | 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.
