In a blender puree sliced strawberries with 2 tablespoons of water.
Pour strawberry puree into a small sauce pan. Add 3 tablespoons of water, sugar, juice of one lemon and heat over medium heat. Stir well to combine.
Gently mash and bruise the mint leaves to release their flavor. Stir into the strawberry mixture, reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes.
Strain the strawberry mint mixture and discard the solids. Let syrup cool.
For each drink, fill an 8 ounce glass with crushed ice and one lemon wedge. Over the ice, spoon 2 to 4 tablespoons of the strawberry mint syrup, depending on how sweet you want it. Pour 1 1/2 ounces of Bacardi over the strawberry and ice. Fill to the top with carbonated water or club soda.
Stir gently, and serve with a mint sprig and lemon slices if desired. Enjoy!
