Citrus fruits have an incredible amount of vitamin C, which can boost the immune system and help fights against infections and illnesses. It's especially important to eat plenty of vitamin C around the winter time, when colds and flus are very common. 

Simply leave out the tequila for a non-alcoholic variation of this recipe.
