Strawberry-Lemonade

working in the garden
pulling weeds
and
picking fruit
can make a girl 
glisten
and
parched
i
like to wet my whistle
with 
a talk iced glass 
of
this
strawberry-lemonade
5 large lemons-sliced
1 1/2 cups strawberries-sliced in half
2 1/2 cups sugar
6-6 1/2 cups water
ice to serve
place lemons, strawberries and sugar in a crock or bowl. let sit for 30 minutes.  after the wait time, use a potato masher or muddle to crush the berries and the lemons to extract juice from the fruit and the oil from the lemons. really get in there and mash them up.  allow to sit for another 10 minutes and then give it another good mash.  leave all the bits in the crock (or bowl) and add water.  start with 6 cups and check for sweetness/flavor. add more water to your liking.  refrigerate until ready to drink.  serve over ice.
