  • lemons 4 large, juiced
  • caster sugar 60g
  • fine sea salt a pinch
  • thyme 2 sprigs (optional)


  • Step 1

    Mix the sugar into the lemon juice until dissolved (add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter lemonade). Mix in the salt and 500ml of chilled still or sparkling water, taste and add a little more water if you prefer it more diluted. Pour into two tumblers with ice and garnish with thyme, if you like.
