Being a teetotaler has never been tastier.
You Will Need
- 10 lemons
- A fork
- A manual juicer
- A strainer or cheesecloth
- Lemon zester
- Lemon peels
Prepare the lemons
Wash the lemons, prick their skins with a fork, and microwave them on high for about 30 seconds. This will loosen the juice.
Soften them up
To further soften them, roll each lemon on a hard surface, like a cutting board, with the palm of your hand.
Squeeze the juice
Cut the lemons crosswise in half and twist them on the juicer to release the juice.
Remove the pits
Remove any seeds from the juice.
Heat half a cup of water on the stove. When it reaches a boil, add one and a half cups of sugar, lower the heat, and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.
Add fresh lemon juice
Remove the syrup from the heat and add your freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Mix with cold water
Add four and a half cups of cold water to the lemon and sugar syrup. Mix thoroughly.
Chill the lemonade
Chill the lemonade, or serve it immediately in glasses of ice with a twist of lemon.
