What about making sangria with it?

Red wine won’t really last that long before turning into vinegar. Also, it shouldn’t be stored in the fridge.

if you buy one that’s made for cooking, it usually has a screw on lid so it can be stored. i would never drink it, but it works for cooking.

If I were you I would look at the grocery and probably just buy cooking sherry.  You can get a much smaller bottle and it will last much longer so you can continue to use it for cooking.

you can freeze it. 

you can freeze it in the amount you’ll regularly need very easily, either in an ice cube tray or zip bag.

also, from now on, consider buying splits or smaller bottles from the store – it might be a little more money per ounce, but less waste if that’s your thing.

Mulled wine!

Or make stew next week–dry red wine goes nicely with red meats.

I don’t really drink (esp red wine) but I would never cook with a wine that I wouldn’t drink/serve.  So to me, no – cooking sherry is not something I would ever use.  But, some people don’t have a problem with it. 

(you cook with drinkable wine b/c the flavor concentrates)

Cooking sherry, or any sherry for that matter, is NOT the same as red wine.  It has a very different flavor.

I have an AMAZING beef stew recipe that calls for almost a whole bottle of red wine.  Do you want me to send it to you?

Naturally, I would get slammed on it. But since wine isn’t your thing, I vote for freezing it and using it for stew or pot roast later.

by those little bottles that come in 4 packs. now you have wine for the next time you cook that is not opened.

I have never had leftover alcohol in my house 🙂 so I cant really relate. hehe
