Prepare the navel oranges, blood orange, grapefruit, and tangerines following the method in the photos. Put all the citrus sections in a bowl; squeeze in the juices from the leftover membranes. Cover and chill.
Slice the top and bottom from the pineapple and rest the fruit on one of its flat cut surfaces. Cut off the pineapple skin, using the tip of a vegetable peeler to remove the eyes. Quarter it lengthwise, slice the core from each quarter, and cut each quarter into 1/2-inch pieces. Cover and chill.
A half hour before serving, combine the brown sugar, sparkling wine, and rum in a large bowl. Add the citrus and pineapple. Peel and slice the banana into 1/2-inch pieces; add it to the salad. Prepare the apple and the pear as follows: peel, quarter, core, and slice each quarter into four pieces, and add to the salad. Toss gently to combine thoroughly. Let sit covered at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Serve in small bowls with cookies on the side.
This is outstanding. I have made this for holiday parties for a couple of years and it never fails to get raves. I cannot always find blood orange, but even with another "regular" orange it is delicious. It is a change of pace of the normal fare. It tastes fresh when other fruit is not generally available.
