Has it sunk in that its June already? Summer already ended here in Guatemala and we have welcomed our rainy season. Everything turns bright green and it rains most afternoons, but it’s all good.

We want to give you bright summery citrus recipes, and we also want them for ourselves to remind us of the cheerful sunny days.

They also give your meals and desserts a deliciously citrus touch and are a great summer drink. Here are our favorite recipes:
