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.

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.
