1 1/2 cup sugar 9 cups water 1 1/2 cup lemon 1 1/2 cup frozen sliced strawberries thawed or fresh strawberries
In a small pot add the sugar and 1 cup of water and mix.
On the stove over medium-high heat bring the sugar and water mixture to a boil, once boiling stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
Juice the lemons into a large bowl. Set aside the fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
In another bowl add the strawberries and mash the strawberries up using a fork so they are in small pieces. You want it to be a mixture of strawberry juice and strawberry puree with chunks.
In a large pitcher, combine the remaining cups of water, simple syrup (water and sugar that you made on the stove and cooled), lemon juice, and strawberries. Mix everything well.
Serve in a glass over ice or store in a pitcher in the fridge.
