Directions:

  1. Wash well and cut the stems off the strawberries and the ends of the lemons. Cut the strawberries and lemons into quarters; don’t take the skin off the lemons.
  2. Combine in a blender with 2 cups of water, and pour the honey over the mixture. Liquefy for about 1 minute.
  3. Pour the liquid through a strainer, using the spatula to scrape it through if necessary. Add the remaining 6 cups of water through the strainer to dilute any remaining mixture.
  4. Add the sugar to the liquid and chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. Serve in a glass with crushed ice, or add to a beverage dispenser to enjoy at you and your guests’ leisure, and enjoy!
