The Best Homemade Lemon Aid | I Can Craft That

Posted 3 years ago

I love lemon aid. A lot. Like a whole bunch. I often find thought store bought ones are either so sweet they make my teeth hurt or so sour I want to cry. So I decided to make a bunch of my own for Evelyn birthday party. I got a Case. Yes a CASE of lemons and started squeezing…. and squeezing and squeezing and roped my husband in squeezing. 

I stored the extra in water bottles in the freezer because there was so much. 
I then made a simple syrup. 1 Cup water to 1 Cup sugar heated by boiling until all the sugar is melted.

Lemon Aid:
3/4 Cup Simple Syrup
1 Cup Lemon Juice
3 Cups Cold Water (or more depending on preference)
Tips for Squeezing Lemons
First off to loosen the juices squish and roll the lemon. it helps release the most amount of juice. 

Next Slice the lemons in half and using a lemon juicer squeeze. You can use a hand juicer if you wish but I prefer to use one with a collection bin underneath so I could filter out the pulp a bit.

I too all the juices and the pulp and put it through a hand strainer and pressed the pulp with a spatula to get the most amount of liquid out.

This is a very very small portion of the lemons I used. We had the freshest smelling organics green bin in town I tell ya.

The end product is absolutely delicious.

So go on get your juicing on and enjoy a delicious summer drink. Let me know how you like it!
