Hibiscus Punch

"I love punches for large parties because you can make them ahead of time," says Kathy Casey. Dried hibiscus flowers, also called flor de Jamaica, give this punch a tart, exotic flavor and a fabulous magenta color. They also make a beautiful garnish. The flowers can be found at Latin and Caribbean markets and at health food stores.
