Why this is called a Maiden's Prayer, I'm not entirely sure but it is one beautiful looking cocktail for sure. It's also really good and easy to make, so that's a bonus.
This was a great way to showcase the beauty of my Canada Goose vintage pilsner glasses as well. Look at how stunning they look in this photo.
What do I need to make this cocktail?

If you don't already have a Boston Shaker, you'll need one of these too. You can get one below as well:

What's a good Gin to use?
I personally use Bombay Sapphire most of the time for mixing because frankly it's low cost and readily available (at least here in Canada anyway). I don't like to use really expensive or craft gin in cocktails with overpowering ingredients like Orange Juice as it takes away from the flavour and defeats the purpose to using a good Gin in my mind. Go with whatever you think is good enough for mixing or, if you have nothing else, use what you have.
What kind of glass will I need?
This also looks best in Pilsner's but, of course, if you are just drinking it feel free to use whatever glass you like. I recommend using low pulp orange juice though otherwise it's just not as good. I tend to buy mine from antique stores or thrift stores.
