Mojito fruit salad

A festive twist on basic fruit salad. I think these would be fun for a summer bridal shower.

I know, this really isn't a baked good, but it's boozey - and good - and sometimes it's just too darn hot to turn on the oven, but you still need something sweet. I tried this out as an experiment, and was very pleased with the results. I served this "mojito fruit salad" to friends at a BBQ, and it was a hit. I cut up pineapple, watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberries - but you can use any fruity combination you like.
I made the mojito glaze out of one part lime juice to two parts rum, with sugar to taste (depending on how much fruit you're using). I chopped up a couple tablespoons of fresh mint leaves and whisked it all together, then tossed with the fruit, and chilled until time to serve. There was just enough of everything to give a basic fruit salad a refreshing twist.
