Cold Peach
and Mango Soup Shooters

Cold Peach and Mango Soup Shooters

Makes 12 shooters (1/4 cup each)

 

This soup is just charmingly fun. It's pretty, it's tasty, and it's easy to make. A gulp or two, served in a little glass, makes for a quick, refreshing treat.

For best results, make it in the summer when fresh peaches are in season. In a pinch, you can use frozen fruit, but make sure it's unsweetened.

Serve the shooters at a standing-and-eating sort of party or as an amuse-bouche between courses. You can also serve the soup as a first course, which would be a great way to kick off a summery dinner party. If that's your plan, double the recipe for six one-cup servings.

 
  • 2 limes
  • 1 ripe freestone (the flesh doesn't cling to the pit) yellow peach,
         pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt, or more to taste
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 12 fresh cilantro leaves

Zest the limes. Set the zest aside. Juice the limes to yield 3 tablespoons of juice. In a blender or food processor, combine the lime juice, peach, mango, buttermilk, orange juice, salt, and cayenne and process until very smooth, scraping down the jar or bowl as necessary (you may have to do this in batches). Transfer the soup to a container and chill for at least 2 hours. (You can prepare the soup up to 3 days in advance, storing it covered in the refrigerator.)

Taste, ideally with your wine and add more lime juice and/or salt if you like. Serve the soup chilled, each serving garnished with a cilantro leaf and some of the lime zest.

 
Food & Wine Tip

If your fruit is particularly sweet, you might notice that the soup makes your wine seem a little sour. To fix this, just add more lime juice, a teaspoon or two at a time, until the soup and the wine nicely complement each other.
