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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
