For the Strawberry syrup:

  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup water

For the lemonade:

  • 6 cups cold water
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 7 medium lemons
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups Vodka
  • Strawberries for garnish
  • 1 medium lemon thinly sliced, for garnish
  • Ice


  • Place the strawberries, sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the strawberries are just starting to fall apart, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Pour the strawberry mixture through a strainer and gently push on the solids to release all of the liquid; discard the solids. Let the syrup cool slightly, about 15 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 30 minutes more.
  • Place the strawberry syrup in a pitcher. Add the cold water and lemon juice and stir to combine. Add vodka and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve over ice and garnish with lemon slices and additional strawberries
