1. Boil the potatoes until tender enough to mash. Drain the water.
2. Mash the potatoes, leaving chunks.
3. Mix in a healthy serving of garlic and about 1/2 a stick of butter for every 8 potatoes.
4. Add a dash of red wine around the pot. A sherry or Marsala would work a bit better, but any red is good. The potatoes should have a nice purple tinge to them now.
5. Serve warm.
