substituting different liquor in recipes

Wendy Lai | Sep 28, 2001 06:55 PM

Can any one tell me if it's okay to substitute different type of liquors in various recipes? I don't want to go out and buy a bunch of different kind. I have a big bottle of congnac, can it be used in placed of sherry, or brandy? The kind of recipes that I'm thinking about are things like pate, gravy, or even for baking.
