Strawberry Limeade

It's been close to a hundred degrees all week.  All I want to do in the afternoon is sleep.  It's that hot.

So this afternoon I decided to dispel the heat a bit with some limeade.  And then when I started rooting around in the refrigerator (generally a sea of Rubbermaid containers) I discovered 5 strawberries.  Eureka!

This is seriously, seriously, the best.stuff.ever.

Strawberry Limeade
5 limes
5 strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
club soda

Juice fruit.  Set aside.  Make simple syrup.  To make simple syrup, boil one cup of water with one cup of sugar in it.  Boil about 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.  Pour the syrup into the juice.  Get (short) glasses and put ice in them.  Pour about 3/4 inch of juice/simple syrup mixture in the bottom of each one and then fill with club soda.  Serve immediately.
