Maiden’s Blush Cocktail (No. 1)

Maiden's Blush Cocktail

Maiden’s Blush Cocktail (No. 1)

1 Dash Lemon Juice. (1/3 tsp Lemon Juice)
4 Dashes Orange Curacao. (generous 1 tsp. Bols Dry Orange Curacao)
4 Dashes Grenadine. (generous 1 tsp. Homemade Grenadine)
1 Glass Dry Gin. (2 oz Plymouth Gin)

Shake (I stirred) well and strain into cocktail glass. (Luxardo Cherry.)

Apparently Maidens of yore were made of sterner stuff than they are today. It looks like a Cosmo, but it’s mostly a glass of cold gin.

And this one definitely needs a cherry.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
