In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, the strawberries, and the remaining 5 cups water. Stir to combine. Add about half of the simple syrup into the mixture and stir to combine. Continue to add the syrup, 1/4 cup at a time, until the lemonade reaches your desired level of sweetness.
Take the fresh mint leaves and give them a smack with your hand to release the oils and stir into the mixture. Refrigerate the mixture for 30-60 minutes to allow the flavors to stew together.
