Every thought how to make your own Lemonade? Need an easy, healthier and more affordable summer/heatwave drink? Then here’s how.

Average cost

Under £10 pounds, maybe even £5

Method

1) Pour the sugar in a heatproof bowl and add hot water from the kettle. Add in stilled water. Stir to dissolve the sugar then set aside to cool.

2) Roll out your lemons on a worktop or surface as this helps release the juice. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out the juice. 250ml/9fl oz will do if your measuring. Use a colander if you want to remove the pips all in one, than individually.
