Cook's Note

Easy Entertaining
This drink can be refrigerated for up to 3 days -- add garnish and ice before serving. Try using canning jars in place of pitchers or glasses for a casual party.


  1. Step 1

    In a large pot, combine sugar, strawberries, lemons and lime. Mash with a potato masher, 5 minutes. Stir in 6 cups water and let sit 30 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a large container, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard solids. Serve over ice.
