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