Lovely and easy. I liked the fresh fruits I used being summer, but I want to try it warmed in winter over vanilla ice cream. Needles to say there WILL be a next time! Made for Daffy Daffodils ZWT4.

Don't think this could have been any easier to prepare! Am already thinking ahead to next winter's holidays, & coloring this just a little with some maraschino cherries! Great, as is, though! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Eastern Europe during Zaar's World Tour 4]

This was delicious. I added a little bit of ground cinnamon to give it more of a spiced flavor but that was just personal preference.
