Expert Tips

To maximize the amount of juice from a lemon, roll a room-temperature lemon back and forth on a counter with the palm of your hand, pressing down firmly.

Substitute 1 cup lime juice (about 10 limes) for the lemon juice; increase sugar to 3/4 cup. Garnish with lime slices and strawberries if desired.
