Leftover Wine

What to do with leftover wine? Turn it into a tasty wine reduction sauce.

  • Pour half-empty bottles of wine into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until the wine reduces by three quarters. Most of the alcohol will be boiled out, and the flavor will be intensified. Cool, pour into ice cube trays and place in the freezer. When fully frozen, store in a Ziploc freezer bag for future use. Reduced wine adds lovely depth to sauces, gravies, soups and dessert syrups.

Drink it!

Seriously, leaving it in the fridge for one day doesn't kill it. And a person shouldn't really have tons of half-empty wine bottles after a party. Even at big wine and cheese parties, they're would only be about 4 or 5 open at a time and we'd kill the dregs in anything late into the night.

For a soiree at my house I think we only ever had 2 or 3 open at a time.
