Method

Place the melons, wine and mint in a bowl and toss to combine. Cover, refrigerate and let the fruit steep in the wine 1 hour. Divide the melons between 4 decorative glasses or serving dishes. Pour any liquid in the bowl over the melons. Garnish each serving with a mint sprig.

Recipe Options: Make B.C. dessert wine marinated tropical fruit by replacing the melon with one cup, each, of balled or cubed fresh pineapple, mango and papaya. Instead of B.C. dessert wine, marinate the melons in another type of alcohol, such as orange liqueur or sambuca.

Serving Suggestions

Make a fine three-course meal by serving the melons after an appetizer and main course created from recipes in our website collection. Some of the many options for appetizers include Baked Oysters with Creamy Spinach and Parmesan Cheese, Cedar Plank Scallops with Lemony Herb Mayonnaise, and Fig and Olive Tapenade. Options for the main course include Baked Halibut Fillets with Lemon and Red Pepper Butter, Smoky Barbecue Chicken, and Steak ‘n’ Crab.
