This is lovely syrup used to brighten up the flavors of a simple fruit salad. The recipe comes to me from the Santa Fe Cooking School and works especially well as a light dessert after a Southwestern meal. The flavors are reminiscent of the popular mojito. I like it best with more tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and banana but find it works very well with summer fruits such as strawberries and grapes. One batch of syrup is plenty for 4-6 cups of fruit. You can prepare this days ahead of time and mix with the salad just before serving.
