Ream juice from oranges (you should have about 1 cup).
Place in pan and add sugar.

Cool; add liqueur, if desired; then cover and chill.
Up to 4 hours before serving, wash, hull, and slice strawberries; gently stir into syrup.

Scoop out and discard seeds.
Evenly spoon strawberries and syrup into the hollow of each melon half.
