Fresh strawberries, sugar and lemon combine to create this homemade strawberry simple syrup.
It's a perfect addition to cocktails, mocktails or even just a homemade strawberry soda – great for both kids and adults!
Wash strawberries. Remove tops and slice into small pieces.
In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar with 1 cup of water over medium low heat, swirling occasionally. Add strawberries and lemon juice.
Cook at a simmer for about 10 minutes until strawberries are mostly disintegrated and the sugar dissolves. Allow to sit for 30 minutes.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve.
Store strawberry lemon simple syrup in glass jar or bottle in the fridge until cold.
