Grapefruit-Basil Martini

I am smitten with the refreshing flavors of the Grapefruit-Basil Martini. 
Normally I don't order cocktails but the flavor combination of grapefruit and basil had me curious. 

This martini couldn't be more simple.   I got this easy recipe from Food & Wine.  
In a cocktail shaker, muddle 1/4 of an unpeeled grapefruit that has been cut into pieces and 2 basil leaves.  Add 1/2 ounce simple syrup, 2 1/2 ounces vodka and ice.  Shake well and strain into a chilled glass.  Garnish with one perfect basil leaf.  Enjoy!
