Description

Generic for a fresh gardenia flower garnish, most often seen floating on the surfaces of tropical punch drinks. The gardenia is not only intended to impart beauty, but scent as well, and such drinks are best sipped nose-up-to-flower instead of through a straw. The gardenia is notable in the Scorpion, a tropical punch drink.
