Maiden’s Prayer

Maiden's Prayer cocktail with gin and orange juice

We’re no maidens (at least, not anymore), but if we were, we’d be praying for one of these. Mixologist Gaz Regan calls for Angostura bitters, but we’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with various specialty bitters.

The Maiden’s Prayer is our favorite of the two sister drinks that originally appeared in Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book (the other being the Maiden’s Blush). This recipe is more balanced and drinkable, albeit less alcoholic, and the addition of bitters puts some pep into a drink template that was a little bit banal without it.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
