Chilled Melon and Champagne Soup

Chilled Melon and Champagne Soup

This soup is just a summertime delight, made with ripe juicy melon, citrus juices, and a splash of champagne. Elegant, light, perfect for summer celebrations of all kinds, and it couldn’t be easer to make, either. A beautifully festive soup!

4 cups chopped honeydew melon, cantaloupe, or a combination
½ cup orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ cup chilled champagne
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

1. In a blender, puree 3 ½ cups of the melon. Blend in the juices and, just before serving, stir in the champagne. Garnish the soup with the remaining ½ cup chopped melon and the mint leaves, and serve.

Serves 6.
