metric measures are incorrect should be 75g. <i> Thanks, we have checked the conversions and adjusted- we have taken 1 oz to be approx. 28g which most tables agree on, so 3oz is 85g not 150g as the recipe stated before. The Cookit Team </i>

I suggest only organic lemon be used, as the peel is coated with pesticides and shellac which will leach onto the barley water. Also, you may want to add the lemon juice when the drink is cool, as heat makes it start to get a bitter, cooked taste. The peel needs the heat to help extract the essential oils.

It's a good idea to use organic untaxed lemons. I add the lemon juice but only from 1 lemon to add flavour. My Victorian grandmother made this all the time as well as orange barley water, for that just substitute oranges for the lemons.

I agree with Devon wholeheartedly, I put my grandma's ashes in a lemon barley water when she died, best drink I ever had.
