A Marvelous Cold Summer Soup

On a blazing hot Savannah summer’s day, nothing can beat a really good ice-cold summer soup.  I didn’t want to make one—my kitchen is running at temperatures hovering in the 100’s since the a/c system is currently non-functional and the repairmen are baffled.   And I couldn’t find a single cold soup anywhere in Savannah except for one gazpacho where they overload it with blazing hot jalapenos.  Then I thought of one of my favorite wintertime soups—Papillote’s Butternut Squash. What if I chilled it, I wondered.  I gave it a try.  After a few hours’ of refrigeration, I added a couple of ice cubes and sat down to eat.  This was pure summertime bliss!  Their slightly sweet, subtly spicey butternut flavor takes to chilling like it was a heaven-sent idea. It is perfect!

A new Bourbon Lovers’ Delight

Next time you’re anywhere near Alligator Soul, head straight there if you love bourbon cocktails.  Order the  Elderfashion.  Made from some mighty good bourbon and Elderflower liqueur , this drink is pure ambrosia.  And I suspect that no one on earth makes it as well as the bartenders at Alligator Soul.  Everything they touch is magic! Same for their food, for that matter!
