Several bowls of varying sizes
100 ml chilled pink champagne (to serve)

In a large saucepan, bring the wine and sugar to a boil. Transfer to a bowl. Put mint and basil in the bowl with that stuff, mix it, then put it back into the pan. Remove from heat, wait a while. Sample the whiskey. Place berries, melon and optional-grapes into another bowl, pour mixture from the pan to that bowl, then transfer to another, larger bowl. Chill for a while, then stand up and place bowl into refrigerator. Wait a couple hours; remove. Pour champagne over mixture. Discard unused whiskey. Serve with a main dish, or eat as a main meal.
