This boozy fruit salad recipe is almost a healthy snack that you can enjoy at a number of festive occasions this season, from the Kentucky Derby to Cinco de Mayo. Created by food blogger Jess of How Sweet It Is, the Strawberry Mango Mint Julep Fruit Salad with Whipped Marshmallow is described as "drunk fruit salad." The adult take on the classic side dish is ideal for people who care more about the fruit in sangria than the wine.

To recreate this alcoholic fruit salad recipe at home, you will need strawberries, mangos, pineapple and fresh mint leaves. To make bourbon syrup you will also need vanilla extract, sugar and water. The whipped marshmallow requires vanilla extract and sugar as well, plus cream of tartar and egg whites.
