Cantaloupe Soup

This soup I made up by reading a ton of melon soup recipes.

2 ripe melons (I used cantaloupe and a mistery melon from the market), peeled, seeded & chopped
2 ripe mangos, peeled, seeded & chopped (I had them, I threw them in)
2 limes (juice only)
1/4 cup dry white wine
a little spring water to help with blending
1/2 tsp cardamom (I'd change this and maybe use nutmeg or leave it out all together)
10 - 15 mint leaves chopped

Proccess in a blender until smooth - you'll have to do this in batches.

Transfer soup to large bowl; cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least a couple of hours.

Invite someone over who brings honeydew soup and serve them side-by-side in a chilled bowl.
