2. Add the peaches, strawberries, orange, grapes and cherries, stir and place in refrigerator for 2 hours
3. For The Simple Syrup: boil 1 1/2 cups water and stir in some sugar, enough to taste a little sweet, stir often and reduce to half, or until you have about 1 cup syrup. About 5-8 minutes. Cool completely.
