Sparkling Fruit

Serves: 2


2 fresh fruits
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup champagne or white wine
1/2 teaspoon fresh mint chopped


1) Recommended fruits; strawberries hulled and sliced lengthwise, melon balls, plums, peaches, pears, nectarines peeled quartered and seeded.
2) In a shallow serving bowl mix the fruit gently so it is not crushed.
3) Evenly sprinkle with sugar and gently mix again.
4) Pour cold champagne or wine over fruit, enough to almost cover fruit.
5) Let stand refrigerated for 1-2 hours.
6) Serve in chilled champagne glasses.

Chef's Tip

Serve with Pepperidge Farms Pirouettes or a similar type cookie that will not dissolve quickly in liquid.

Beverage suggestion: Espresso
