Acher Shaker- Lemon Aid

Calling out to all freshers! You are slap-bang right in the middle of your first student week, and you are more than likely beginning to feel the (not so great) effects of student life. If you need help to shake that ache, whether its cause is a self inflicted hangover or the strain of Portland Hill, then our ‘Lemon Aid’ recipe is just for you.

Get yourself on the road to a hangover recovery with a cool glass of Lemon Aid. The grapefruit will help your body eliminate any toxins, whilst the cucumber will flush out your kidneys. A perfect beverage to help you survive those freshers lectures.


  • 1 large grapefruit
  • Half a lemon
  • Half a cucumber
  • Ice cubes
  • Sparkling mineral water


  1. Peel the grapefruit and the lemon, leaving as much of the pith on as you can.
  2. Juice the peeled fruits, along with the cucumber.
  3. Pour into a jug filled with ice, and top up with sparkling mineral water
