I have to admit, from my event last week this idea was my favorite. When I was buying napkins, I saw these plastic shooters and thought it would be really fun if people had shots of soup. Also it is very simple to prepare and serve a large quantity of individual shots. I think these would work best if they were passed rather than sitting on a table. This is a great way to serve something really warm in the winter. But they would also work in the summer using a chilled soup.

1/4 Cup (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
5 large carrots, thinly sliced
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/4 teaspoons dill seeds/ or dill weed
4 cups chicken broth

1 cup packed coarsely chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 tablespoons olive oil

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add carrots, onion and dill seeds and saute until onion is soft, about 10 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, about 35 minutes. Remove from heat and puree the soup in a blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Combine fresh dill, pine nuts, and olive oil in blender. Blend until well blended- mushy.
Pour a shot of soup with a dollop of pesto on top!

  1. what a great idea! very creative… i wish i had some now since i’m on a liquid diet without my wisdom teeth! :)

  2. Sounds cool.

    Maybe they could be handed out with little bread sticks or some other soup dipping thingy? Cup in one hand, dipping food in the other. Hot.

  3. Patty –
    Those drinks were fierce! Me and my friends tried your recipe this weekend, and after 4 of them (each!) we were on the floor. Thanks for the tip, and keep the recipes coming.

  4. Where did you find those shooter cups? I have been looking everywhere….

  5. Hi, I am doing a party just a few days from now and wanted to do something like this but could you please tell me how large these are because the largest ones I could find are 2 ounces. Do you think this is the same sized you use?

  6. So I realized I responded to the comment to Jenn above personally on not to everyone on my website to read. If looking for these shot glasses I got mine at Party City. Also they were about 1.5 ounces.
