Maiden's Prayer

This is a tropical tasting gin cocktail that could easily be done with rum, and it probably has. I wanted to keep that sense of the exotic and use an unfamiliar gin flavor of Vitae Modern Gin as the base for my example. It takes you out of the mode of thinking that gin tastes like juniper  (though this one does) and gives you a lot of other fresh botanicals to consider while sipping. And Vitae is molasses based, just like their Orange Liqueur. This liqueur enhances the hearty orange flavor that is already present in the gin.
  • 2 oz. gin (Vitae Modern Gin used)
  • 1 oz. curacao (Vitae Orange Liqueur used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. orange juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
