Sweetness - 1/3
Difficulty - 1/3
1 cup organic cane sugar, or 3/4 cup if you don't want it as sweet
1 cup filtered water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (4-6 lemons)
1/2 cup strawberries, stems removed
3 cups filtered water
In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water and the cane sugar to a low simmer, stirring it a few times until the sugar melts. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Pour into a large pitcher.
Place the strawberries and 3 cups of water in a blender and blend until smooth. Add a few pieces of fresh mint and blend again. Put a strainer over the pitcher and pour the mixture in. Pour the lemon juice over the strainer as well.
Add a generous amount of ice to the pitcher when ready to serve.
