After we got home I decided that some strawberry lemonade was in order.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Juice from 4-6 lemons
4-6 cups cold water
Mix 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in small saucepan. Smash up the strawberries with a fork and add to the saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool completely.
Mix the strawberry simple syrup with the juice from 4-6 lemons and stir well. Strain mixture into a pitcher. Add 4 cups cold. At this point I like to taste it to see how sweet it is, and ass more water to taste. I don't like it too sweet so I usually end up adding about two more cups of water.
