Herbal Summer Cocktails: Geranium Rose Cocktail

<p>
<em>Makes 1 drink</em>
<br />
When I first made this, I imagined a tart pink drink, and decided to use rose-scented geranium. I was quite pleased with the results, but a few testers (male) found the rose geranium too perfumey for their taste. I made it again with red-flowered bee balm (<em>Monarda didyma</em>) and loved it. It is a scandalous scarlet pink. </p>
<ul>
<li>2 rose-scented geranium leaves or 5 bee balm leaves</li>
<li>1½ ounces vodka</li>
<li>3 ounces pink grapefruit juice</li>
<li>1 tablespoon grenadine</li>
<li>Heaping cup crushed ice</li>
</ul>
<ol>
<li>Muddle geranium or bee balm in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.</li>
<li>Add vodka, grapefruit juice and grenadine, along with ice and shake for 10 seconds.</li>
<li>Pour into a well-chilled martini glass and serve immediately.</li>
</ol>
