A sophisticated and elegant twist on a very simple dessert.

3 tablespoons orange or almond flavored liqueur,
or rum or cognac (optional)
4 cups fresh fruit pieces (strawberries, peaches, apples, grapefruit, orange, banana, cantaloupe, blueberries, kiwi fruit, etc.)
Mix maple syrup and liqueur together.
Gently stir maple syrup mixture into fresh fruit pieces. Allow to stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
