I was cleaning a cupboard last night and was reminded of a half bottle of nice red wine that got put away after Christmas dinner. This happens fairly often. I'm more likely to cook with it than drink it. Does it still have any life left?
Can someone educate me on leftover red wine? We don't drink much at all -- don't object to it so this is a typical occurrence after holidays. How long does it stay drinkable? How about useful for cooking. Any good recipes for cooking with it -- I have a risotto recipe but that's it. Is it better to store in the refrigerator if I know we won't be drinking it but might save it for cooking?
