Melons are 96 percent water and contain a pleasantly sweet flavor, so you don't have to add extra sugar to this punch. 

To add some more freshness, throw a few sprigs of mint into the punch.

This looks like the perfect refreshing drink for a sunny day! Could I add in citron melon? Would that be too much?

Thanks for your question: that sounds like a terrific idea and would work perfectly. Just cut back a little on the other melon to keep the proportions the same.
