Why not, Juzi?
An appetizer is a small portion designed to stimulate the appetite and prepare it for the dishes to come. Anything that does that meets the definition.
Thus, your sour soup would be served in a small bowl or cup, or in the form of a shooter, or some such plating. Nowhere near the size of a full serving, in other words. With a cold presentation, you might, for plating interest, do something like hollow out sections of cucumber (leaving a bottom) and fill them with the sour soup.
