1/2 cup sliced   Berries
1 ripe peach, pitted and sliced
8 lemon slices, halved

Chef's Notes

Sweeten with agave syrup if desired.
If you don’t have cayenne pepper, substitute with your favorite spice or 1 thinly sliced fresh chili pepper if desired.
Garnish with mint or basil leaves for an extra pop of color.
