Bourbon Minted Fruit Kabobs
- 1 cup bourbon
- 1 cup water
- 1 handful mint leaves, chopped, plus more for garnish
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cantaloupe cut into 32 wedges
- 1 honeydew cut into 32 wedges
- 1 pineapple cut into 32 wedges
- 32 strawberries
- 32 grapes
In a saucepan over high heat, bring the bourbon and water to a boil. Add the sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Add the mint, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Chill.
While that is cooling, skewer the fruit onto metal or bamboo skewers, alternating the fruit for color and texture. Place the kabobs on a platter. Drizzle them with the cold mint bourbon sauce. Garnish with fresh mint.
