Step 1

In a saucepan over medium heat add 3/4 cup water and the sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer until sugar dissolves. Stir in lime zest and let it steep while preparing the fruit.

Step 2

Cut off the top of the pineapple. Slice down the sides, removing the eyes. Quarter the fruit lengthwise, cutting away the core, then slice the pineapple into fan-shaped pieces about 3/8 of an inch thick. Peel and slice the kiwi into rounds and place them on a platter with the pineapple slices. Sprinkle with the lime juice and add kirsch or rum, if using.

Step 3

Add the silvered basil to the syrup and pour over the fruit. Chill and then serve garnished with basil leave or flowers.
