  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 10 large fresh apricots, pitted and quartered
  • 1 cup dry Champagne, chilled

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium nonreactive saucepan, combine the sugar with 1 cup of water and stir over moderately low heat until the syrup is clear, about 4 minutes. Pour into a heat-proof bowl.

  2. In the same saucepan, cover the apricots with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until pulpy, about 25 minutes. Stir in the syrup.

  3. Strain the apricot soup through a fine sieve into a nonmetallic bowl and refrigerate until chilled or for up to 1 day. Stir in the Champagne just before serving.

Suggested Pairing

A flute of Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec is an ideal partner for Splichal's Apricot Soup, which owes its own hint of effervescence to a splash of dry Champagne.
