Recipe by angis

This is definitely one of my favorite recipes. It is from my ultimate cookbook, Great Housekeeping. I've been making this for years and it impresses every time. It also works well if you use mango pulp instead of the mixed soft fruits. Feel free to leave out the alcohol, I only add it when I it's on hand since it doesn't greatly affect the taste. I'm not too sure of the prep time and serving size so I've only written approximations. Enjoy!
