Forking: Champagne Soup Aperitif

Follow this slide show's step-by-step guide to making this week's dish.

C.M. Redding is back this week, Forking for the New Year. Here's his recipe for champagne soup:

Champagne Soup Aperitif

Note: the recipe is per serving, so adjust accordingly -- you might need more cantaloupe if you're serving more than 2 people, for example)

Ingredients: 

Bottle of champagne, Brut or Extra Dry (sweeter)

1 cantaloupe

1 lemon

1 lime

1 jalapeno

Orange juice

Bunch of mint

Salt

 

Directions:

Line the bowls up in assembly line fashion, and into each place:

6-10 melon balls

1/2 cup champagne

2 tbsp O.J.

1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

½ tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

½ a fresh jalapeno squeezed in a garlic press - careful only 4-5 drops

1 sprig of mint

Pinch of salt to taste

 

The beauty of this concoction is you can add more of whatever you want, to taste. For example, add more jalapeno for a more spicy soup. I always recommend more champagne.
