Maiden’s Prayer

PUBLISHED ON: 03.11.2010

We enjoy a good cocktail to wind down at the end of a work week, when entertaining or sitting out on our patio. My husband over the years has earned a reputation among our friends for his cocktail shaking prowess.

This cocktail is tasty, a bit sour but makes a refreshing palate-opening before a meal.

Maiden’s Prayer
Makes two 4-1/4 ounce drinks
Recipe from: Raising the Bar

3 ounces good quality gin
3 ounces fresh orange juice (from approximately 1 orange)
1-1/2 ounces fresh lemon juice (from approximately 1 lemon)
1 ounce triple sec
2 orange twists for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all the ingredients except the orange twists. Β Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat.
Strain in cocktail glasses, garnish with the orange twists, and serve.
