What to do with Bad Wine – Crappy Wine tips

If you like to try different wines, you inevitably,
end up with some wines that are just too crappy
to finish on their own.

The Wine Miser has some tips for you:

#1 Make it a spritzer, add Sprite or 7 Up until
the wine is palatable.
#2 make Sangria with it. Add Lemon and Fruit
Juice to taste.

#3 Cook with it.

-Make Coq au Vin,

-Wine Vinegar,
– Risotto

-Poach with it.

With Corked wines- Those wines infected with
TCA 2-4-6 Tricloranisole or Brettanomyces.

Wine that smells of wet dog, is cloudy and rusty.

– Toss them or use with cooking.
