INGREDIENTS

  • ½ pound fresh strawberries, stems removed

  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar

  • 4 ½-5 cups water, divided

  • 1 ½ cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Use a blender or food processor to puree the strawberries. Strain them through a fine mesh sieve, if desired, to remove seeds.

  3. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

  4. Strain the lemon juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a 2-quart pitcher. Add simple syrup and pureed strawberries and stir to combine. Refrigerate until cold.

  5. When ready to serve, add 2 ½ cups of cold water and stir. Taste, and add more water if it's too sweet.

  6. Serve with ice.
