Your party will get off to a great start when you welcome guests with glasses of this fruit-studded sangria.

Here's a peachy way to begin a lady's luncheon or brunch. This refreshing soup shared by Lane McLoud of Perry, Georgia stars her home state's premier fruit crop. The toasted almonds on top are a nice complement to the sweet-tart flavor. "A serving of this fruit soup is surprisingly filling," she writes.
