Strawberry Lemon Water

Another beautiful afternoon here in the upper plains.  And the perfect reason to create a refreshing water with some strawberries that needed to be used up.




                           Strawberry Lemon Water
                
8 cups water
3/4  cup sugar

8 large strawberries, quartered
4 thin lemon slices


Pour 7 cups of water into your favorite pitcher.  Heat 1 cup of water
with the sugar until it has completely dissolved, cool and add to the
pitcher.


Quarter the strawberries and slice the lemon and add to the pitcher.
Allow to cool and the fruit juices to release into the water.
