I love lemon water. Love it. I don’t really like adding lemon slices to a pitcher because it starts to taste pithy after a while. I started juicing lemons and adding the juice to water about a year ago. I much prefer this way. Bags of lemons were on sale today so I could finally do what I’ve wanted to do for a while – freeze the juice in an ice cube tray.

For best juice extraction, cut the lemons in half and place them cut side down on a plate and microwave for about twenty seconds.

Pour about half a lemon’s worth of juice in each cube space. That should be a good portion for 1-2L depending on how lemony you like it. Freeze. Once frozen solid, place cubes in a freezer bag or Tupperware container in the freezer.
