Ingredients:  
1 cantaloupe melon, halved and seeded
1/2 honeydew melon, seeded
1/4 cup superfine or granulated sugar

Directions:
Using a melon baller, scoop flesh from cantaloupe and honeydew into balls; set aside. In a large glass or ceramic bowl, combine the sugar, lime juice, lemon juice, orange liqueur, and lime zest. Stir well to dissolve sugar. Add the cantaloupe and honeydew balls, strawberries and grapes. Toss gently to combine. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to blend flavors, stirring once or twice. Spoon the fruit mixture into serving bowls or hollowedout melon halves, dividing evenly. Serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For a tropical fruit version substitute kiwi slices, pineapple chunks, papaya slices, or mango cubes for some of the melon balls. Add a little grated fresh ginger or ground ginger. A dash of coconut extract would also make an intriguing addition. Try serving this version in a hollowedout pineapple half.
