    It's o.k. I can't really taste the lemon/orange syrup through the flavors of the fruit.

    This was very simple to make and the extra flavor from the sauce made it taste better than a plain fruit salad. I went to Walmart though and couldn't find the cherries to use! I just bought more grapes, I plan on making this over the summer using the cherries, too.
