6 Ingenious Uses for Leftover Wine
Like red wine pasta...or poached eggs
When you cracked open that bottle of rosé the other night, you figured you and your friend would finish it off (along with a couple eps of House Hunters)--but somehow you didn’t. Now it’s three days later and you’re questioning its shelf life in your fridge. Here, six ways to make sure your leftover wine does not go to waste.
RED WINE PASTA
Sure, the recipe calls for the whole bottle of red, but you can get away with two-thirds, NBD.
To whip this up, all you need to do is simmer the extra wine (white, red or rosé--it doesn’t matter) on the stove with a bit of sugar for 15 minutes, then drizzle over delicious ice cream and serve.
Trust us: Nothing tastes as decadent as a perfectly poached egg served on a bed of red wine sauce.
Here’s a tip: Cut your summer soup recipes with a cup or two of leftover red or white wine and let it simmer for an extra 15 to 30 minutes. It will taste like it’s been on the stove for hours!
