HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - Chef Patrick Evans Hylton shows us how to make a Peach Bourbollini and a dipping sauce for chicken wings.

BOURBOLLINI

A BOOZY CELEBRATION OF NATIONAL PEACH MONTH
Peaches are juicy and ripe in the heat of the summer. We love using fresh pureed peaches in a classic Bellini cocktail, but we make ours with a twist; we add bourbon.

Peaches and bourbon have a natural affinity with each other. A shot of Virginia bourbon adds another flavor element to the drink. Our Bourbollini is easy to make with just three simple ingredients. Here’s how you make it.

Chill 8 ounces of bourbon, 1 cup of finely pureed peaches (or fresh peach juice), and a bottle of Prosecco or other sparkling wine. In 4 champagne flutes or white wine glasses, add 2 ounces each of bourbon and 4 ounces of peach puree. Stir and top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a wedge of fresh peach and fresh mint sprig.

IT’S A WING DING

WITH CHICKEN WING DIPPING SAUCES
Start clucking! July 29 is National Chicken Wing Day. We love chicken wings as a snack and a meal. To cool off fiery wings, dip them in one of our homemade sauces

We’ve got recipes for Blue-tiful Cheese Dip, Cool Ranch Dip, and It’s Greek To Me Dip. Here’s how to make them:

Blue-tiful Cheese Dip: In a medium bowl, add 2 cups sour cream and 1-1/2 cups Greek yogurt. Add 1 teaspoon coarse salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Stir until incorporated and fold in 4-6 ounces of crumbled blue cheese. Refrigerate for at least an hour before using.

Cool Ranch Dip: In a medium bowl, add 2 cups sour cream and 1 cup buttermilk. Add 1 dried chives, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon dried dill, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Stir until incorporated. Refrigerate for a least an hour before using.

It’s Greek To Me Dip: Peel, half, and seed 2 medium cucumbers and finely grate; place in a fine strainer over the sink weigh with a small plate or bowl, and drain for 1 hour. In a medium bowl, add 2 cups Greek yogurt and 1 cup sour cream. Add grated cucumber, 3-4 finely minced garlic cloves, zest and juice from one lemon, 3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, 1 teaspoon coarse salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Stir until incorporated. Refrigerate for a least an hour before using.
