Begin with all ingredients at room temperature, they will emulsify more readily. In a food processor or blender, process the yolks, salt, mustard, cayenne, lemon juice and water together to form a stable base. With the motor running, add a few drops of the oil, the mixture will begin to thicken. Then, begin adding the remaining oil in a thin, steady stream. Scrape down the sides of the processor/blender. Check seasoning. Keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serve with cold meats, seafood, poultry and salads. 

Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
