Champagne soup: the best recipe

What is champagne soup?

The original recipe for champagne soup is a little different from the one we know today.

It is a traditional French recipe that dates back to the 19th century. It also included white wine, cognac and sugar. At that time, it was served hot and was considered a main course.

Today it is made with champagne, cointreau, lemon juice, raspberry syrup and garnished with whole raspberries. The soup is served cold and is also popular as a cocktail. It is offered in bars and clubs in Paris for special occasions such as birthdays or parties.

The preparation of the champagne soup is relatively simple. All the ingredients are mixed in a bowl and the mixture is then poured into a bottle of brut champagne.
