Boil sugar and water for 3 to 4 minutes to dissolve all the sugar.
Chill completely and add lemon juice.
Puree half the strawberries and add to lemonade.
Stir well—you'll need to shake or stir occasionally as strawberries will settle.
Slice remaining strawberries.
Serve lemonade ice cold and garnish with sliced berries and fresh mint.
