  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups strawberries hulled
  • 1 cup lemon juice (from 5-6 lemons)
  • 5 cups sparkling water or still, if you prefer
  • crushed ice


  • Make sugar syrup: In a saucepan over high heat, boil one cup water and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Set aside and let cool completely.
  • Blend strawberries: To a blender, add strawberries and lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
  • Assemble: Carefully combine sugar mixture, the blended strawberries and sparkling water. For a smoother texture, pour through a sieve to remove strawberry seeds. Serve in glasses over crushed ice.
