A good simple bite to have with drinks (made either with phyllo or puff pastry): make little turnovers (triangles, like mini-spanaktopitas) filled with grated sharp white cheddar and Major Grey's Chutney - bottled is fine. Brush with an egg wash and bake on parchment.

My favorite recipe using phyllo wouuld also be my favorite Greek dessert, Galactobouriko. It features a farina-based custard and boozy syrup and is disgustingly delicious. ;)
