Maiden's Prayer is a classic Gin Cocktail made by blending Gin, Sweet Vermouth and Orange Juice. The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book states that there are two variants of this tangy concoction. The first variant was made in 1935 by a certain bridegroom, who was looking for an exclusive drink for his stag party. He added Orange Juice and Gin to Sweet Vermouth and made the first Orange Blossom.
