“This fruit cocktail soaked in brandy or cognac and sparkling wine is a festive way to begin a meal. To lend an elegant touch to a brunch or dinner party, serve the fruit in a champagne glass. After the fruit is eaten, use the same glass for champagne or sweet white wine. Preparation time includes cooking time, but does not include chilling time. Note: this is very good either with a brunch-type meal or after a dinner party, served with assorted cheeses.”
