Gianfranco's Boozy Orange and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

Author Notes:

My cousin Gianfranco, who lives in Italy, has a passion for boozy desserts. Whenever I add a liqueur to a dessert, I think of him. This is one of his typical fruit desserts (and he doesn't mind that I'm sharing it with food52) Gianfranco's Boozy Orange and Pomegranate Fruit Salad is perfect for the holidays because it's light and has wonderfully festive colors and only takes a minute to prepare! It's the perfect end to a big holiday meal, or the highlight to a party buffet.
