In a small pot, bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil. Cook until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a blender, combine cooled simple syrup, lime juice, sliced strawberries, and ginger. Blend until smooth. Pour through a fine strainer (or cheesecloth).
Pour limeade into a pitcher. Stir in remaining 1 ½ cups water. Taste and add more water, if necessary. Cover and keep chilled in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve with ice, sliced strawberries, and lime wedges.
This makes for an excellent cocktail mixer. Add in your liquor of choice. Vodka, gin, and white rum are great options.
