How to make Lemon Squash

  1. Sterilize a wide mouthed glass bottle along with the lid. To sterilize the bottle, place it in a large pot. Fill up the pot with water covering the bottle. Bring the water to rolling boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  2. Place the lid in the pot. Remove from water after 15 minutes. Dry.
  3. Squeeze juice from lemons. Pass it through a strainer with large holes to remove the pips.
  4. Fill up the sterilized bottle with sugar. Add lemon juice. Secure the lid.
  5. Keep the bottle in Sun for 12 days. Shake the bottle every day.
  6. Sugar will dissolve by keeping the bottle in the Sun. The squash will be ready by the end of 12 days.
  7. Take ¼ glass of squash. Fill up the glass with cold water. Serve with chopped mint leaves and lemon slices.
