    In an 8-inch to 10-inch pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium heat.  Add the garlic cloves and sauté slowly, shaking pan to keep garlic moving, until brown on all sides (about 10 minutes).  Add the mint.  Add sweet wine and dry white wine, bring to a boil, cook until liquid is reduced to ¼ cup; the garlic should be very soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
