If you have wine in your home that has gone sour and can’t drink it, there are some ideas to get the most out of it. So do not just throw it away!
One of the best ways to use it is in the kitchen. As long as you don’t drink it from a cup, you can use the sour wine in the preparation of certain dishes and improve those flavors of the meat or fish, either baked or cooked in the pot. With spices, citrus and a splash of wine you’ll be making delicious dishes!
It has always been said that wine is a perfect antioxidant for the skin. It renews it, leaving it brighter and silky, and is used in beauty salons and spa for treatment. Therefore, you may use your own sour wine to make a homemade mask with other ingredients that result in something finer, smoother and brighter for your skin health.
In the kitchen, a sour wine can have other uses. Besides cooking, it’s used to wash fruits and vegetables, because alcohol dissolves impurities and kills those microorganisms that may be in certain foods.
Also, it works wonderfully in our home glasses and crystals. In particular, white wine, because it contains vinegar that we can apply to our windows and clean all of them from our different rooms. It is very recommended you use these sour wines for that benefit, they shall be shining!
And talking about vinegar, sour wine can be used to make some of it too. It will serve to you as an extra condiment for your cooking. Just pour the leftover wine in jars or bottles and leave it to marinate so it gets vinegary. As older the bottle is the more vinegar taste will get, which is perfect. This vinegar will always be of higher quality than the ones we can buy at the supermarket and will give a different flavor to your dishes.
