Strawberry Lemonade

This is a refreshing lemonade to make and serve on hot summer days.  It has a strong strawberry flavor and a more subtle lemonade flavor.  Perfect to make when strawberries are fresh in season.  After I make this I strain it thru a fine sieve strainer to get out all the seeds and pulp. Delicious!
1 quart water
1 cup sugar
4 large lemons, zest removed in long strips, lemons juiced
2 pints strawberries, tops removed 
In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of water, sugar and lemon zest and bring to a simmer while stirring. Pour the syrup into a stainless steel or glass bowl, stir in the remaining 2 cups of water and lemon juice. Let cool.
Process the strawberries in a food processor or blender, stir into the lemonade and strain.
