  • 12 fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 7 cups water, divided

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 1 cup lemon juice

  • 2 cups ice cubes


  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.
