Delightful way to serve fruit! I loved the muscat with the melons and I think it would be great with other fruits as well. I thought I had some mint but couldn't find it - I think that would have been a great addition too. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by Cookgirl)
