4 from 1 ratings
Take advantage of what's in season with this refreshing (and boozy!) summer dessert. Vanilla Bean Cane Sugar adds a warm flavor note to counter the bright mint. 
  • 1 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup vanilla bean cane sugar*
  • 2 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 ripe cantaloupe, halved, seeded, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
  • 8 ounce strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved lengthwise
  1. Bring the wine, sugar, and mint leaves to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Strain mint leaves out of the mixture.
  2. Combine the cantalope, strawberries, and grapes in a large bowl. Pour the warm wine mixture over and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until cold, stirring occasionally, at least 2 hours.
  3. Garnish with chopped mint leaves.
