How do you juice a lemon without a lemon juicer?

The store near my house has lemons but no lemon juicers. What's the best way to juice a lemon without a juicer?
I like work. It fascinates me. I sit and look at it for hours.

    Cut in half and squeeze? :wink:

    Ugh. I'm absolutely useless in the kitchen. The only thing I know how to make is rice.

    This is not a fashion trend, it's not a statement, it's pride for who we are and what we look like. And that is where our true beauty shines.

    If you want just the lemon juice, you can buy that buy itself ;)

    I've found the best way is to first roll the lemon back and forth on the counter with your palm, applying pressure (this frees up some juice before you cut it), cut it in half, then either just squeeze or stick the end of a fork in the lemon and squeeze around that.

    Happy juicing!! :)

    When you say juicer, are you talking about those big electric machines? Because for about $3-4 you can buy a hand citrus juicer at stores like Walmart. You cut the lemon in half and twist it back and forth on the juicer top part that is screwed on top of a glass bottom. There are all glass juicers too for a few dollars more at kitchen places.

    This is what I do too. Some people say the frozen juice concentrate is just as good, but I like fresh juice.

    I finally "splurged" and got one of these. One of the best things I ever bought.
