===Squeezing a lemon===
# It is permitted to squeeze a lemon on sugar even if one’s intent is to put the sugar in a liquid afterwards, however, there are authorities who are strict on this issue. <Ref> Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 5:5,6, 39 Melachos (vol 2, pg 346). Although the Shulchan Aruch 320:6 states that one may squeeze a lemon on [[Shabbat]], the Mishna Brurah 320:22 explains that the reason for the leniency doesn't apply today. Kitzur S"A 80:12 writes that it is forbidden to squeeze lemons to make lemonade.</ref>
# It’s permissible to cut a slice of lemon and put it into a drink even though the juice will seep out. <Ref> Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 5:2 </ref> Note that if the drink is hot tea its only permissible if it is made in a Kli Shelishi (see [[Bishul]]). One may gently stir the tea but one may not press the lemon against the wall of the cup. Additionally, one should cut the lemon directly over the tea. <ref> 39 Mleachos Melachos (vol 2, pg 340) </ref>
