Method

Take a skillet and add olive oil and butter to it. Heat in medium flame. Add onions and garlic and cook for 30 seconds, while stirring regularly. Ensure that the chopped onion slices and minced garlic turn soft and then add the rest of the ingredients, except half-and-half in a slow cooker. Add the sautéed onions and garlic in it as well. Cover the vessel and cook its contents on a high flame for 3 hours so that you get a tomato stew. Remove the sprigs from the parsley. In a food processor, puree the contents from the slow cooker. Add the half-and-half and stir to combine. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat until heated through, for 15 minutes. Pour the soup evenly in two bowls and garnish with garlic croutons. You can serve the soup with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Put the croutons on top of the soup. Grill the soups in the oven until they gratinate. Serve immediately. 

While it's great to learn about alcohol, it is important to also consume alcohol moderately. Remember to serve and drink responsibly to ensure you and your guests are healthy and out of harm's way. If you know anyone who has trouble controlling their alcohol intake, please refer them to a professional immediately.
