Geranium recipes

I love geraniums as my grandmother grew them on her balcony so I hve many fond memories; I absolutely adore the smell.
I have been growing some from cuttings and gradually increased these. Recently a colleague -who has now retired (I will miss her fount of knowledge) mentioned using lemon scented geraniums in a sauce or drinks.
I have two lemon scented, one large rise scented geraniums which have grown well after nurture. I have three cuttings of different rose geraniums and intend to try to take more cuttings of the lemon scented. I would love to have a box or two on my balcony of beautiful smelling plants and herbs. However, I will need to consult my husband as he doesn’t share my love of plants but he may if he can pick and add to his drinks!
