Passion Punch, Because Everybody Deserves A Great Libation

British soldiers are credited with discovering punch in India in the 16th Century (if they found it there, doesn't that mean that the natives discovered it? Anyways more of those kind of rants in a moment.)
The name punch derives from the Hindu word for 'five,' referring to the five ingredients in the beverage.
Some believe five refers to the distinct elements necessary in punch - sweet, sour, bitter, weak and alcoholic. Here's a modern punch to try featuring Culinary Traditions Passion Fruit.
