When you are serious about your cocktail.... A Maiden's Prayer

The Maiden Prayer has all the elements which allows you to create this cocktail anyplace, anywhere with a few quality ingredients  which include gin, orange liqueur, and fresh orange and lemon juices.

A slightly sour but refreshing palate opener. A perfect lead to a good meal anytime of year.

A Maiden's Prayer Cocktail
Makes two 4-1/4-ounce drinks
Adapted from Raising the Bar

3 ounces good quality gin 
3 ounces fresh orange juice (approximately one orange) 
1-1/2 ounces fresh lemon juice (approximately 1 lemon)
1 ounce Cointreau or other good quality orange liquor
2 orange twists

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all the ingredients except the orange twists.  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.

This sounds delicious. I am in such a routine. I come home to make supper and it is skyy vodka on ice with a splash of pink grapefruit juice.

This cocktail might even make me like gin! Sounds delicious, especially with the freshly squeezed OJ!

Love the refreshing mix of citrus in this drink, Velva. And I'm with Susan, this one could probably make me like gin too! :)
