It happens, not every bottle of wine is good. Sometimes a gifted bottle is just not the taste you prefer. Maybe you wanted to try something new and it ended up being a flop. It happens to everyone. At some point, everyone has had a bottle of wine in their possession that they are not able to stomach but they don’t want it to go to waste either.
Occasionally, the bottle wine may have tasted good at one point then went bad. Sometimes a bottle of white wine will get lost in the back of the refrigerator. Every once in a while a bottle may get opened and left out before someone remembers to put it away. Rather than fretting about it, there are a few alternatives that can be done with the wine without it having to be drank.
Although many people argue that it has to be a good bottle of wine to be used in cooking, it is more than ok to use a bad bottle in a recipe. It has been found in a blind taste test that if the wine has been boiled, braised, or reduced it does not make a difference. Do not be afraid to use a bottle you are debating about throwing out. It will all taste the same in the end.
Red wine is notorious for staining fabric so it only makes sense that it would be perfect as a dye. Linens, table cloths, clothes, and pillow cases can all be dyed to make a fun craft project. By wrapping rubber bands around the shirts you can even create an edgy tie-dye t-shirt.
This one is kind of a given. Table scraps and leftovers make great materials for compost. That bottle of wine that was going to be thrown out anyways might as well go in the compost pile. This will even help the bacteria grow.
I know what you must be thinking but it has been used as aromatherapy, or rather, vino-therapy. It is said that bathing in wine can soften and firm the skin. This is a great way to get some alone time and it can make the room smell great.
The best way to protect against a bad bottle of wine is to go to visit wine tasting rooms and discover a bottle you enjoy. However, it is always possible to end up with a less than perfect bottle at some point. Bad wine does not have to be wasted. There are several ways to make use of it rather than fretting about through away a full bottle. Even though it may not make a great drink, it is sure to be beneficial when it is used in a different way.
