Jane Shapton's cold puréed soup of cantaloupe and peaches, topped with raspberries, captures the flavors of the season. She serves it for brunch or dessert, in hollowed-out melon halves. A splash of white Zinfandel underscores the fruity flavors of the soup, but you can use just peach nectar if you prefer. Prep time: about 15 minutes, plus at least 30 minutes to chill.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a blender or food processor, whirl cantaloupe, peach, peach nectar, white Zinfandel, and lemon juice until smooth. Taste and add sugar if desired.

Step 2

Pour soup into a container, cover, and chill until cold, at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day. To chill faster, nest container in a bowl of ice water and stir soup often until cold, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Pour the soup into shallow bowls. Scatter raspberries on top. Garnish with mint sprigs.
