Earlier this week, I received a big box of citrus from my friend Cherril’s trees. Cherril, a friend I met on my work trip to Nashville last year, lives in Arizona, and grows grapefruit, pomelos, blood oranges, Meyer lemons and more. It’s incredible!

It’s great to have friends all over #gannett! Look at this gorgeous citrus from @cherrill.crosby’s trees! #lohudfood

For our first use, we made cocktails. Of course we did.
