1/2 medium Canteloupe
8 ounce Grapes -- peeled
4 slices Pineapple -- diced
1/3 cup Caster sugar -- superfine
2 medium Peaches peeled, pitted -- and cubed
2 tablespoon Rum
1/4 cup Cognac
3 ounce Strawberries -- hulled
1/2 Bottle sweet spumante
3 ounce Blueberries -- trimmed

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.
