Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar together in a bowl; set aside for juices to release from strawberries, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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. Read More

I had a massive hankering for lemonade this week & stumbled upon this recipe. It's very tasty. In my opinion it just needs a little more strawberry! Next time I make it I plan on adding some blueberries & raspberries to get a mixed berry flavour! Read More

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. Read More

The flavors in this recipe could have been stronger. I barely tasted any strawberry or lemon flavor despite using ripe berries from the farmers market and fresh-squeezed lemons. I do want to try it again with more lemon juice and strawberries. Read More
