Mix sugar and water together in a medium saucepan. Add the whole strawberries and bring to a low simmer. Cook for 10 minutes without stirring. Strain into a bowl or jar. Skim off any bubbles. Chill.
For the Punch:
Assemble drinks by placing 3 tablespoons simple syrup in the bottom of glasses and then add the ice. Pour in 1/4 cup pineapple juice into each glass followed by a cup of Florida Orange Juice. Serve immediately.
Turn this fresh punch into a pitcher cocktail by removing 1 cup of pineapple juice and 1 cup of Florida Orange Juice from the recipe, and then adding 1 cup silver rum and 1 cup of coconut rum. If you don't like coconut rum, you can use 2 cups silver rum.
