1/2cuphulled and chopped strawberriesfrozen is fine
1/4cup(50g) granulated sugar
A couple drops of red food coloringoptional
Pour 2 cups of whole milk into a large glass and place in the freezer so milk becomes very cold. (Skip this step if making the syrup ahead of time.)
In a small pot, combine strawberries, sugar, and water. Bring to a low boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, until fragrant and reduced.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain syrup into a small bowl or cup. Discard strawberries. Mix 3 tablespoons or about 2/3 of the syrup into your very cold milk. Stir and then add more syrup to taste. Add food coloring if desired.
