In a medium bowl, mix together sliced strawberries, sugar and 250ml of water. Cover the bowl with cling film and place in the fridge for 4 hours.
Remove the strawberry mixture from the fridge and pour into a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Pour the blended berry mixture through a sieve set over a large mixing bowl; discard the pulp and seeds.
Add the remaining cold water to the pureed strawberries and mix well. Place the strawberry water in the fridge to chill for several hours or pour over ice and serve immediately. Garnish with lime slices or mint leaves.
