Strawberry Basil Lemonade

A few years ago we went to a great restaraunt in Chicago and I ordered this.  The Basil and 
strawberries help to sweeten the lemonade naturally.  I used the opal basil and it also naturally 
turns pink.  Here is my version.

1 ripe lemon (roll on the counter to soften) and squeeze into a 2 qt pitcher
Fill with ice, and add a tablespoon of Agave nectar, 
a handful of ripe strawberries and a few stems of sweet basil.
Allow to sit in the refrigerator so the sweetness develops for 
an hour or so.  Stir, taste and adjust the sugar if needed.  
Serve over ice and garnish with basil and a perfect strawberry.
