  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.

Footnotes

  • 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.

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 bl...

I liked it a lot but my girlfriend thought it was too sweet, but when life gives you strawberry lemonade,,,, add vodka :)

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.

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 tr...

My wife and I just made it. Very good! Definitely make it again.

Will make again. Simple to make.
