Step 1: Slice and Squeeze

Wash the lemons, slice them in half, then get working with the lemon squeezer thing.
Just push and twist, and make sure you dont waste any valuable juice.
You dont need to have one, you could just do it by hand.

Step 2: Sugar!

Pour some sugar into the sugar cup - just under a quarter of the jug you're using.
Fill the cup to the sugarline with water, stir it a little, then pop it in the microwave for a minute.
When thats done, stir it a bit more and put it in for another minute. Then stir it till the granules are gone.

Step 3: Mix It All Up

Just mix up the sugar and the lemon juice in the jug, fill it to the brim with cold water, and give it a good stir. Drop in a few ice cubes.

Wallah, you have your delicious lemonade.

[optional] pop it in the fridge for a while for best results.

      hahaha, im doing an instructable on lemonade ice pops, so before i make a new instructable, i make sure it doesnt exist. i came across this which is the EXACT same way that my mom used to make homemade lemonade, and i learned how and had JUST made some which inspired me to make the ice pops. AMAZING!!

      isnt it a contrast to the sugar though?
      ill be sure to try it anyway though =)

      Just a hint, you might try a pinch (and I mean a small small pinch) of salt in this. It brings out the flavour.

      Thanks for the compliment connorcancount, and ill be sure to try that Andrew_modder!


      nice. lemon-aid is awesome.. Plus yeah, melting the sugar-water mix, REALLY helps its quality, and also if you take the lemon-aid and put it in a dish then pop it in the freezer, each half hour or 45 minutes put a fork, and adjitate the juice, so after about 3 hours you will have a really NICE almost creamy lemon slush :----)
