About lemon juice
Lemon Juice is an essential ingredient for cocktails.
_It should always be freshly squeezed._
*How to juice a lemon*
To get the most juice from a lemon bring it to room temperature, then roll it on the counter with the flat of your hand while pressing down on the fruit to soften them up before squeezing. Alternatively, put the fruit into the microwave, on high, for 10 seconds to release the juices. A medium sized lemon has about 1 1/2 oz. of juice.
*How to store lemon juice*
When placed in a tightly-covered container, fresh lemon juice may be stored in the refrigerator for about 2-3 days. After that, it will begin to lose its flavor. If you have citrus juice left over after making your cocktails with lemon juice, freeze it in ice cube trays for longer storage and convenience.
