The Maidens Prayer

There is not much I can say about this drink or the poem. It is an interesting drink that please's so many people. I make my Maidens with equal parts Gin, Cointreau, lemon juice,orange juice, a hint of sugar and egg-white. The egg-white is optional but adds that extra depth and texture.

Just a quick thanks to Laco for the pic, cheers mate!

She is soft and subtle
Quiet and reserved

Her name is
Uttered in reverence
Whispered, held in awe

Delicate and slightly pale
Golden and angelic
Fully formed a maiden true

Forgotten in a dark times
Of crude names
And rudimentary understanding

She sits longing for that
Touch, soft lips
That cold embrace

She dances across
The tongues of many
Joyful, demure

Playful, a combination
Of innocence
Longing, trapped in a lingering dance

Hopeful knowing
That her prayers
Will be answered by me

Night after night
I set her playful
Nature free

Maidens Prayer
Into a boston add:
25mls Gin (Beefeater)
25mls Cointreau
25mls Fresh lemon juice
25mls Orange juice
5mls Sugar syrup
1 egg white
Shake with force and determination, strain into a 7oz cocktail glass and garnish with a small lemon twist. Serve to a maiden
