When it comes to creating a cocktail, there is no exact science on how to do things. Some people prefer a more creative approach while others abide by the rules of the bartending bible. We have come up with a few tips to make concocting your cocktail a little easier. Since the juice of lemons and limes are used in most drinks, these tips may come in handy.
When Life Gives You Lemons; Make Cocktails
If you are having an issue getting the most juice out of your lemons, limes or other citrus fruits, do not fear the team at Root7 is here. We have come up with a couple simple tips on how to squeeze out every last drop of juice out.
I Like To Roll It, Roll It
Rolling your fruit helps to burst open the segments inside both limes and lemons. This unpretentious act makes it easier to get the juice out - think of it as a pre-juicing method.
Microwave It Love
Simply stick your lemon or lime into the microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds. We know it sounds peculiar, but it works! The heat helps the citrus juice flow more easily, especially if you just took it out of the fridge. Once you have finished microwaving your citrus fruit, let it cool for a minute before juicing.
It’s All About Cutting That Lemon Right
Get the chef knife out, it’s time to cut that lemon right. Cutting your lemon or lime lengthwise instead of crosswise makes the fruit easier to grip and squeeze. Cutting just off centre helps to severe through the section of membranes.
Go Old School with a Fork
If all else fails, it’s time to bring out that fork. Try twisting the citrus segments around with a fork to help break open any remaining bits of pulp.
You Could Just Buy a Reamer
It’s time to get your gadget on. You could use a citrus squeezer, a hand juicer, or you could get fancy with our BAR10DER to get all that juice out.
