Combine orange juice and syrup; pour over fruit. Stir in coconut; reserve some for garnish. Spoon mixture into 6 sherbet glasses; sprinkle coconut on top of each glass. Chill until ready to serve. Makes 6 servings.
“P.S. If you like the flavour of dry sherry or bourbon, add ¼ cup to the liquids and allow fruit to ripen in this mixture.
