Fruit Cocktail is a mixture of preserved or fresh fruits cut into pieces and served as an appetizer or dessert, its is also called “Fruit Cup”. Seasonal fruit and a simple syrup form the basis of this fresh-tasting treat. It is a terrific topping for ice cream or a perfect finish to a light meal.
We often serve fruit cocktail at birthday’s, wedding parties, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Festivals.
