Share This:

Citrus Season is in full swing here in the Rio Grande Valley.  As you drive through the valley every fruit stall is brimming with bag after bag of citrus.  One of our favorite times of the year as we enjoy freshly squeezed juice every morning with our breakfast.  Here is a tangy citrus punch made also with local honey.  Enjoy! Sweet Life!
