This was the first time I had tried making homemade lemonade- and definitely not the last! I used a trick my mother showed me, which is to roll the lemons very firmly and then poke several holes in each lemon with a knife. After, put them in the microwave for 1 minute, pausing and then restarting after 30 seconds. It takes a little more time, but I ended up using 4 lemons and got a cup of juice!
Also another good idea is to add some of the pulp after juicing the lemons, giving it a better, fresher flavor. And I replaced one cup of water with 2 cups ice.
