The above video demonstrates the elegantly simple technique, but it really couldn't be easier. Just cover a citrus half in cling wrap, make a slit on the edge, squeeze out whatever you need and — unless you squeeze your lemon or lime dry — pop the whole thing back in the fridge until you need a little more juice.
