Texas Tea

“This is one of my favorite thirst quenchers during the summer. At first the combination of citrus and mint may seem strange, but just give it a try. It is destined to become a favorite. I got this from a high school friend (Erin)’s Mom at an end of the year Senior barbecue.” – April Ferre
