Grappa originated in Friuli in the 15th century, and it's still very popular in the region. It adds a bit of a boozy punch to fruit salad. You can use any mix of fruit you like and any sorbet, though a tart citrus one works especially well. Slideshow: More Fruit Salads

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small heatproof bowl, combine the sugar, lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of boiling water and stir to dissolve the sugar. Let cool. Discard the zest; stir in the grappa.

Step 2    

In a bowl, combine the strawberries, raspberries, peaches and 1/4 cup of the grappa syrup; add more syrup to taste or reserve for another use. Let macerate for 15 minutes, then serve with sorbet.

Make Ahead

The grappa syrup can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
