  • In a food processor or blender, in batches puree the strawberries, transfer the puree to a stainless steel or enameled saucepan, and stir in the sugar and water.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over moderate heat, stirring, and simmer it for 1 minute.
  • Force the mixture through a fine sieve set over a bowl and chill the syrup, covered, for at least 3 hours.
  • Strawberry Float:
  • In each glass combine 1/4 cup each of the milk and strawberry sauce.
  • Put 2 or 3 scoops of the ice cream into each glass and fill the glasses with the club soda or seltzer.
  • Divide the remaining syrup among the sodas and garnish each soda with a strawberry.


I can't get enough of strawberry flavored anything, this reminds me of working at Johnny Rockets, making real 50's style malt milkshakes and drinks.
