  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 22 oz (1 pound 6 oz) strawberries hulled, sliced
  • 3-inch piece ginger peeled, sliced into disks

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

This makes for an excellent cocktail mixer. Add in your liquor of choice. Vodka, gin, and white rum are great options.
