Gin, elderflower and citrus sounds like a no-duh combination, but it took barman Josh Pope of Icenhauer’s in Austin to come up with the perfect proportions, in the form of the Candace.
This’ll be pretty fantastic with any gin you put in it, from a London Dry to something more floral like Hendrick’s. If you choose a sweeter gin like an Old Tom, cut back a bit on the simple syrup.
Shake everything (except for the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Garnish with a wheel or wedge of grapefruit.
