Experimenting in the kitchen's fun for me. That's how I came up with this recipe—I adapted it from two different recipes I got from friends for a melon ball basket and for a sparkling beverage. —Teresa Messick, Montgomery, Alabama

"I used the sparkling white wine and it was very tasty. Execellent in 90 degree weather. Next time I will use a shorter glass - so I can get to the fruit w/toothpick"

"I like all the ingredients. It would make a lovely appetizer for a ladies luncheon. I would prefer to serve it in stemmed sherbert dish as you would need spoon to eat the fruit. Tall glass would make it ackward"

"I have not made this as of yet, however my family does not like cantalope and honeydew. I am wondering if I could use Kiwi, grapes and other fruits?"
