"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

This is a great summer soup and goes surprisingly well with ham and cheese sandwiches.

A nice variation is to sprinkle a dash of dried dill weed on top.
