  • 6 lemons or 50ml of lemon juice (not sweetened)
  • 150g sugar
  • 400ml water
  • 6 cubes ice optional


  1. Cut the lemons in half and juice them. Remove any of the seeds that have come out from the lemon. Keep the lemon skin for later, this is optional.

  2. Add the lemon juice, water and sugar to a jug that can shut with a lid. Shake well until the water is a misty colour. Test to see if the taste is to your liking.

  3. Add the ice and lemon skins (again the lemon skin is optional) to the drink and serve to your guests.
