PINOT GRIGIO

Ingredients:
1 Bottle Clover Hill Pinot Grigio
1 Lemon (thinly sliced)
1 Lime (thinly sliced)

Once simple syrup is ready, add 1 tablespoon to each wine glass. Then add mint leaves and stir/lightly muddle. Next add several slices each of lemon and lime.

Top off with wine and let set for a few minutes so the flavors can meld together. Top off with more wine and citrus as needed.

1 Bottle Clover Hill Pinot Grigio
1/2 Cup of Peach Schnapps
1/2 Cup Lemonade
1/2 Cup Simple Syrup

Add frozen peaches, chopped apples and halved grapes. Let blend in the refrigerator for about 1 hour and serve.

Reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, for 12 minutes. Remove cobs with tongs. Carefully transfer soup mixture to a food processor or blender. Add roasted garlic, lemon juice, and sour cream. Process soup in batches. Add sun-dried tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Season to taste and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Soup can be thinned with a little extra chicken stock if necessary. Mix goat cheese, chives, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest together using both hands. Refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, spread goat cheese -chive mixture on sourdough slices. Put under broiler for about 5-6 minutes, until goat cheese starts to turn color slightly. Divide soup evenly in large soup bowls. Place two crisscrossed croutons halfway into soup with the other halves resting against the edge of the bowl. Garnish with chopped tarragon.

When mixture is well-blended, add 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese and Parmesan cheese. Add the two reserved tablespoons of wine, then set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 4 dozen phyllo cups on a baking sheet. Fill each cup with mushroom-spinach mixture, filling very full and mounding mixture on top. Garnish each cup with a pinch of the remaining half cup of shredded cheese.

Bake 10-15 minutes, until cups are slightly browned and mixture is hot.
