It's wine I drink out of people's glasses like Spaulding in Caddyshack.

I just made coq au vin last week, though I used a whole bottle's worth for six chicken thighs. No leftover wine for me.

Surprised they didn't include "make a sauce." White and red wines are great sauce additives. Red wine in pasta sauce, white in risotto and cream sauces. Both are good in fond-filled gravies.

I've made vinegar from old wine. Infused it with herbs from my garden. Good stuff.

It's the residue on the cork that can be extracted by chewing when you're hard up for a drink.

I never have old wine.. I have about 200 bottles I keep around at any point in time. Everything is represented to some degree.

When cooking I just pull out a bottle of something and start cooking with it then drink it while cooking or with dinner.

Today I'm picking up another two cases.. Half white (getting a case of House Wine) and a mixed box of reds probably or more Chardonnay.

I nearly sliced off a finger tip by doing this. Found out what fingernails are for that day.

How does that work? I thought vinegar was what you got instead of wine if you used the wrong (or right if you're after vinegar) kind of yeast. I didn't know they could be converted.

Sure - how do you think they get red and white wine vinegars? They may use a different yeast/base for pickling and white vinegars. I'm not sure. But when wine turns, it turns to vinegar. No reason to waste it!

I think the real question is "Where the hell does one get old wine?"
We never seem to have any within an hour or so after opening the bottle.

R.A.Danny: We never seem to have any within an hour or so after opening the bottle.

If I'm entertaining and have a big bottle of the cheap stuff with some left over I'll sacrifice it for the cause. Berringer's Cab works well because of the high alcohol content.

I have a special bottle where I dump the leftovers from unfinished glasses. I use it for cooking.

It's actually a bacteria^ not yeast that makes turns the ethanol to acetic acid. Oh and the reason why it is best to add some vinegar to start the process is to make sure that only the right kind of bacteria can colonize your wine (most others as killed by the acid). Otherwise you can get all sorts of funky stuff growing in there.

Is that the wine that she doesn't finish drinking after the roofie gets to her?
 
2010-08-27 01:54:52 PM
Yeah, I'm with you on the "leftover" wine. But I have opened up some really terrible, undrinkable wines before. So yeah, we use those in sauces, etc.

Yep. Did this with half a bottle of red two-buck Chuck I found open the morning after a party. After the first week, it tasted like sour wine. After the second week, it tasted like the most god awful sour wine you've ever seen. After the third week, it tasted like really good vinegar. Just had to turn that corner.

Wine is significantly better in sauce-making than water for two reasons. First, it has its own flavor to bring to the party. Second, even though most of the alcohol will cook off, what is in there is sufficient to unlock flavors that are not water soluable (sp?).

I use a generous shot of Burbon whenever I bake anything with apples.

Leftover wine happens when you have already drank 2 bottles and drunkenly opened a third right before passing out.

That said, I've been making reductions with any "extra" wine I have. Last one I did was 1 bottle of old vine zin, 1 bottle of port, and maple syrup. Excellent with beef or pork. Seriously good sauce for drizzling.

For four years running, I kept getting Christmas gifts from people that had to do with preserving wine in a bottle. Neutral gas infusers, vacuum sealed stoppers, etc. etc.

I finally told everyone to knock it off. I have never, ever had anything left over at the end of the night. The night does not end until the wine is gone. If you're opening that fourth or fifth bottle ... you better be damn sure you can hang until it's done.

I used to think that adults were supposed to like wine and jazz (amongst other things). But I've reached the point where I feel comfortable admitting I don't like either.

But that just means more wine for those of you who do, so drink up!

This is how it's done.
I use white for rice dishes and sauces, red for other sauces and whatever is left over for the chef. I didn't know there was any other way.

Bourbon with apples or yam. I made a yam, pecan pie with a shot of bourbon in the topping. Divine.

That's any wine left in the bottle after the girl decides she is drunk enough to have sex!

I know every single one of those words but when you arrange them in that order I have no idea what it means.

Left. Over. Wine.......sorry I just got dizzy, what were we talking about?
 
2010-08-27 02:10:28 PM
We don't have this "leftover" wine issue. However, we DO have the issue where many of the pan sauces and reductions we make call for a 1/3rd or 1/2 cup of white wine. Sometimes, we'll be dead set on serving red with dinner. But now we have to open this bottle of white, for the sauce, and we can't let THAT be left unfinished.

You see where this is going. Me on the floor, facedown, drunk and happy.

Lay me to snooze in the mud and the ooze
With plenty of booze to warm me
I'll dream of a crown and an ermine gown
And kings bowing down before me
Give me wine as I ask for wine
And the wealth of the world is mine, all mine

So what care I for a purse of gold
For blood that is old and blue
A noble name or a royal fame
When a flagon of wine wil do
A flagon of wine
A gallon of wine
A barrel of wine will do
An ocean of wine will do

Leave me to quench on a tavern bench
With my drowsy, frowsy doxie
She's Helen of Troy for to be my joy
Or Mary of France by proxy
For when I'm drunk as I wish to be
Why, any fat wench is a queen to me

So, what care I for a downccast eye
Or love that is pure and true
There's none so dear as the girl that's here
When a flagon of wine will do
A flagon of wine
A gallon of wine
A barrel of wine will do
An ocean of wine will do

Bury me deep for my last, long sleep
With a gallows steep beside me
I'll never wake with a long headache
Or heaven or hell betide me
For if I die as I hope to die
Then I'll never be sober again, not I

So little I care for a fast and rare
I long for a stronger truth
No water for me to eternity
When a flagon of wine will do
A flagon of wine
A gallon of wine
A barrel of wine will do
An ocean of wine will do

Just came in here to say that I'm having a really shiatty Friday at work and could use a nice big glass of wine right about now. Only 2hrs and 15min until I can get the hell out of this place.
