Sorry I'm just getting back to you..I just pick the fruit I like best and that is in season, now and then I splurge and buy some strawberries or blackberries but usually I use several types of melon a honeydew and watermelon the small one that is all heart and no seeds, I add a can of drained pineapple chunks, the berries,apple slices several peeled and sectioned oranges, red seedless grapes, halved...I take the mint and add it to a simple syrup which I chill then pour over the fruit then chill the whole thing. To make a simple syrup I just take 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar,the juice of 2 limes, mix together and bring to a boil add a half a bunch of mint push it down into the hot liquid and simmer several minutes.pour through a strainer let cool then pour over your fruit..If serving in one large bowl I add several sprigs of the mint to garnish, do the same using one sprig for a single serving...You can add a jigger or two of vodka to your simple syrup if there will be only adults, plain if children are expected. Enjoy
HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna
