I think ideally you should just make a brief apology the next time you see him (not make a big deal about it, but let him know it won't happen again). Everybody understands when you make that kind of mistake, because you can't read minds and everybody who's actively social makes those mistakes. It's whether you repeat the same mistake after you've been informed it was a mistake that determines whether the person likes or dislikes you.

Most people, of course, won't apologize. That's going the extra mile.

Edit: Although this was apparently at least a few months ago, so at this point it would be rather awkward to say "hey, remember when I embarrassed you a few months ago, sorry about that."
