Fruit salad isn't the only way to use sweet summer melons like cantaloupe and honeydew. From fantastic wine punch to daiquiris, here are seven refreshing drinks to make with melon.

Frozen melon balls keep this delicious Riesling-based punch cool. Plus, they're fun to eat.

This gorgeous green drink combines honeydew juice with Moscato, the fizzy Italian wine.

Amber rum, cantaloupes and orange bitters star in this refreshing drink.

Sweet honeydew pairs well with the cucumber and rose flavors in Hendrick's gin.

Mixologist Lindsay Nader's take on the Midori Sour is made with Peruvian pisco—a clear brandy distilled from grapes—and melon liqueur.

This light summer drink features a sweet fennel salt-coated rim.

"What's fresher than cucumber, melon, mint and lime?" asks bar owner Hans Hilburg.
