This is a cold garlicky soup. In fact it is never cooked at all! In Spain they use fresh almonds, just out of their shells, so the taste will be different than the soup you had in Spain unless, of course, you have access to fresh almonds. You can also substitute melon for the green grapes.

Cook's Note:

Variation: Use a medium-sized honeydew or musk melon instead of grapes, sliced into finger-sized pieces. Reduce garlic to 3 cloves; don't toast the breadcrumbs and use 1/2 lb. ice. Omit the water, as the melon is juicy enough.
