Midsummer Passionflower Punch

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ingredients

* Leaves from 4 sprigs of mint * 1/4 cup sugar * 4 cups seltzer water * 6 cups passion fruit juice * 1 lime * ice cubes * 6 passionflowers
Procedure

Bruise the mint leaves with the sugar in a mortar and pestle. Transfer the mix to your punch bowl. Pour seltzer water and fruit juice over the leaves. Squeeze in the juice of the lime. Add ice cubes and garnish with passionflowers. Substitute club soda or sparkling water for seltzer water if desired. One note for serving: You should NEVER get passionflowers that have been grown non-organically, because they will almost definitely have chemicals on them that you do NOT want near your food! If you have no way to acquire passionflowers (or even if you do and you just like this idea), I might suggest investing in some rose-shaped cake pans--they're usually in a set of four or six and make cupcake-size cakes--and filling them with water and freezing to make big pretty flowery ice cubes. You can even sprinkle some mint leaves in there to freeze into the cubes. It looks beautiful, but believe me, it won't last long under the hot sun!
