How-To
To get the most juice from the lemons, let them stand at room temperature or microwave on High for a few seconds before squeezing them. Rolling the lemons on a counter while pushing down firmly to break the tissues inside will also release more juice.
Success
Tastes for sweetness of lemonade vary, so feel free to adjust the sugar to your taste. You may want to make this on the tart side and let guests add sugar if they prefer it sweeter.
