Fruit Salad Honey Lime Sugar Syrup

My little¬†brother got married in June. At his wedding luncheon, we were served a fruit salad with our meal. The fruit was literally the most delicious fruit I had ever tasted. It was so sweet and so good! While I was eating it, I noticed that there was a little syrup of some sort on it. I knew that that was what was making the fruit taste so good! After the luncheon, we were cleaning up and one of the caterers was cleaning up too. We complimented her on how delicious it all was, but we couldn’t stop talking about the fruit! She mentioned that they used a honey lime sugar syrup over all of it that made it taste even more delicious than the fruit already is naturally.

I needed that recipe! I came home and searched high and low online, but had no luck at finding a recipe. So, I made my own! It isn’t exactly the same as theirs, but it is pretty darn good.
