The mint in this recipe provides a refreshing burst of flavor along with the sweetness of the fruit. Your friends will ask for the recipe! Honeydew, Musk or Tuscan melon can also be used, and peaches can be substituted for the nectarines. If you are looking for more variety in your hydration routine, give our strawberry-melon chiller a try.
