  1. Mix strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar together in a bowl; set aside for juices to release from strawberries, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan; add 3/4 cup sugar. Cook and stir sugar mixture until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool simple syrup to room temperature.
  3. Stir simple syrup, 6 cups water, lemon juice, and ice together in a pitcher. Add sweetened strawberries and stir.

  • Cook's Note:
  • I always mix the ice and simple syrup together first and give it a good stir so that the syrup is nice and cold before I add the remaining ingredients.
  • Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp.

Tasted like watered-down bottled lemon juice that happened to have sliced strawberries in it.

Yes, it was very refreshing. The sugar can be adjusted as my husband thought it needed a little bit more even though I only used 6 cups of water. Also, it will turn light pink as it sits.

This was actually pretty good as is. The key is to let the strawberries release their natural juices in the sugar for a minimum of 10 min.
