The Friday cocktail: Per Diem

We’d find all kinds of ways to travel on business if the Per Diem were one of the daily perks. It’s a gin-lover’s dream that will transport you to the South Seas—even if you mix it up at a Holiday Inn in Houston. Sans alcohol, the Per Diem retains its cool bite.

  • 1½ oz Beefeater gin
  • 1 oz elderflower syrup*
  • ¼ oz simple syrup
  • 1½ oz fresh-squeezed pink grapefruit juice
  • ½ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • Grapefruit twist

*Available at BevMo or specialty shops like Sur la Table.

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

The nonalcoholic version:

  • ½ oz elderflower syrup
  • Tonic water
  • Grapefruit peel

Fill a Collins glass with ice and add a shy ½ oz of elderflower syrup. Top with tonic water.

Garnish with a grapefruit strap.
