4 cups green tea (iced, or champagne, or seltzer, or ginger ale, or the cocktail makings of your dreams
4 cups iced green tea (or champagne, or seltzer, or ginger ale, or the cocktail makings of your dreams)
Combine the strawberries, sugar, water, and lemon zest in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for about 25 minutes. Strain, pushing down on the strawberries to extract all the juices. Place in a covered container and completely in the fridge (store extras in the fridge, too).
Add about 3 tablespoons of strawberry syrup to a cup of green tea. Stir, and taste to see if you want more syrup. Serve over ice.
