This Fruit Salad with Peach Moscato Drizzle is a simple and delicious tipsy salad.
Here in Texas it’s hot as @#$%!!! And I can’t seem to cool off, but that’s okay because I can cool off with all of these summertime treats like this tipsy salad I made. It’s a bunch of fruit mixed with a sweetened Moscato drizzle. Simple as that!
I’ve been off for about two weeks on vacation now and I ended my vacation doing dinner with some coworkers. But this dinner wasn’t our usual meet and greet at some restaurant… It was at my house this time. My peeps wanted to test out my skills and see what I’m working with since they know I cook and all….
I whipped up a few dishes and planned on making this extravagant cake, but after working on a huge homework assignment during half of my vacay, I was completely over it…. I wasn’t about creaming butter and shifting flour – the homemade meatballs was pushing it already. So I made this fruit salad and added a twist to it by using a Peach Moscato I found in my local grocery store. It was a hit! (P.S. – If you don’t have Peach Moscato, try another flavored Moscato or a Regular Moscato. Just add a bit more simple syrup if the Regular Moscato is not sweet enough for you.)
We nibbled on this salad along with Garlic Parmesan Meatballs and Bruschetta with Fresh Mozzarella. And of course we drank wine. I look forward to the next one… I just have to figure out what I want to cook for the next go round.
But for now, I’m back to homework. It’s calling my name. It’s saying “Hurry Come Back or Else”. And I’m like “ugh not again”. It will be over soon….. Only a million classes to go. 🙂

This reminds me… I haven’t made a fruit salad in such a long time!
How simple and colorful. I love fruit based desserts and love the idea of using a fruity drizzle on top.
Thanks so much!
