Any combination of berries or cherries (or nectarines or peaches, for that matter) can be used in this sparkling dessert. Several colors make the prettiest presentation, but single-berry ambrosia is delicious too. Nonalcoholic champagne can be substituted for the real thing.

  1. Combine honey, lime juice and large mint sprigs in a small saucepan; warm over low heat just until the honey melts. Remove from the heat and let steep for 5 minutes; discard the mint.
  2. Place the fruit in a large bowl, pour the honey mixture over and stir gently to combine. Divide the berry mixture among 6 individual goblets or dessert dishes and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 1 hour.
  3. Just before serving, pour the Champagne (or other sparkling wine) over the fruit. Garnish each serving with a sprig of mint and serve.
