A beautiful and fresh fruit salad to add to any party day or brunch menu!
- Place grape juice in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Bring it to a boil and immediately reduce heat to medium low. Allow juice to simmer on low until reduced by half about 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
- Add the lime juice, zest and ginger into the warm grape juice. Pour juice into a container, cover and refrigerate. Prepare in advance to allow flavors to combine and for juice to cool.
- In a trifle bowl or clear container, layer the fruit starting with the grapes, pineapple, strawberries and cantaloupe, ending with the blackberries.
- Pour the chilled grape, ginger and lime syrup over fruit, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Syrup will color the fruit purple and create a bolder flavor the longer the fruit sits in the syrup. Serve chilled.
