1/2 cup simple syrup (see directions below)
1 cup blueberries
1 1/2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries

1 1/2 cups apple chunks (cut into stars if courageous)
1. To make simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup water and add 1/2 cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to summer and stir until dissolved. Turn off heat and let cool.
2. combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve well chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or can be served over ice.
