Hello.

Please have a look at the sentence:

The lemon juice was so sour that he made a funny face when he drank it.

1) Is it grammatically correct?
2) Can we use 'to make a funny face' in this meaning?
3) If not, what are better alternatives? For example 'to make a grimace' or 'to screw up one's face'?

'to make a grimace' or 'to grimace' This is much more formal.

to screw up one's face' OK

You should perhaps have a look at the verb 'to pucker up'

It is interesting that in English when you make a funny face it doesn't have to be funny. At least for you Emotion: smile

Yep, I had. Doesn't mean the same, but good to know this word.

Thank you!
