Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca

A fruity, refreshing, non alcoholic beverage - that's what an agua fresca is.  This particular one is a burst of fresh strawberries and limes; absolutely delicious.
I found the idea for this recipe, credited to Eat Live Run, at Pennies on a Platter.  It sounded great.  It was a cinch to make; three ingredients and it comes together in snap.
I definitely recommend this drink - high yum factor!

Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca
Adapted from Pennies on a Platter

1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 lb strawberries, trimmed (frozen, defrosted work perfectly)
2 cups cold water

1.  Put the 1/3 cup of water and the sugar in a small bowl.  Microwave for 20 seconds.  Stir until the sugar dissolves.  This is your simple syrup.

2.  Puree the strawberries.  Pour through a fine mesh strainer.

3.  Combine the strained strawberry puree, simple syrup, and lime juice in a pitcher.  Stir to blend.  Stir in the 2 cups of water.

4.  Pour over plenty of ice and serve!
