zest of 1 lemon, in wide strips
2 cups sugar
2 cups chopped hulled strawberries
2 cups fresh lemon juice, from about 10 large lemons
¼ tsp. salt


To make the lemon syrup, bring the lemon zest, 1½ cups sugar, and 1½ cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.  Let the mixture cool to room temperature.

To make the strawberry syrup, toss the strawberries and the remaining ½ cup sugar in a bowl and let sit at room temperature until the sugar dissolves, about 45 minutes. Strain the strawberry mixture; reserve the strawberries and the strawberry syrup separately.

Combine the lemon syrup, lemon juice, salt, and 2 cups cold water in a pitcher.  For each drink, put about a tablespoon of the strawberry syrup in a tall glass, fill with ice, then add the lemonade and some of the reserved strawberries.


You can make everything ahead of time—refrigerate and combine right before serving.
