Add all ingredients, except the oil, into a blender or a food processor. Turn on food processor and begin to slowly add in the oil. As the aioli begins to thicken, add a splash of ice water to thin it out ever so slightly. You want the aioli to be spreadable and not too thick. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and lemon juice if necessary.
