Garnish these elegant fruit cups with mint sprigs, lemon balm or fresh edible flowers, such as violets or nasturtiums.
- 5 cups fresh seasonal fruit, cut into bite-sized chunks, such as kiwi, strawberries, cantaloupe and blueberries. Other summer options are raspberries, green grapes, honeydew, watermelon, cherries (halved and pitted) or pineapple.
1⁄4 cup sugar
