Preparation / Directions:
( Macedonia di Frutta allo Spumante ) Remove rind, seeds and center filaments from the melon; scoop the flesh into balls with a melon baller. Put all the fruits into a bowl and add the sugar, rum and cognac. Pour the spumante over. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Note: Take care in purchasing the Spumante not to get a bottle that is too dry. Moscato is your best choice, as it tends to run from slightly sweet to very sweet...and for dessert, you will want it to be sweet.
