  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. lime zest, chopped

For the raspberries:

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries

For the soup:

  • 3 cups peeled, seeded, and diced ripe cantaloupe pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice

Preparation:

  1. For the sorbet, combine the 2 cups sugar and 2 of the cups of water in a heavy bottomed pot and whisk to combine.
  2. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until all of the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Pour mixture into a large bowl and cool to room temperature. Then place the bowl in the refrigerator until well chilled.
  4. When the sugar mixture is cold, add the remaining cup of water, lime juice, and zest and mix well to combine.
  5. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and make the sorbet.
  6. While the sorbet is being made, toss the raspberries with the sugar and the mint and set aside to macerate.
  7. Place the cantaloupe and lime juice in a blender or food processor and puree until very smooth.
  8. Strain the puree through a strainer into a clean bowl.
  9. Just before serving add the Champagne to the puree.
