You can also freeze the leftover in some ice cube trays for making spritzers at a later date. Of course in my experience there is rarely any leftover.

Sorry, Sleepyduck, but your cooking wine is past it's prime as well. Wine that is opened should be consumed within a couple of days (unless it is a dessert wine, like port, which has already maderized). If you want to cook with wine, a couple of weeks old is generally about as long as you want to go. Basically, if you wouldn't drink it, you shouldn't cook with it either. At least this gives you a good excuse to go wine shopping emoticon Pick up a bottle for you and one for the kitchen!

throw it out. Red wine unless it is marked cooking wine needs to be comsumed about 2 to 3 days after opening the bottle. normally red wine is served at room temperature.

My personal opinion: when in doubt, throw it out.

It definitely depends on how it was stored. In the fridge it might still have been OK but on a shelf, probably turned to vinegar...

No, it will not be good to drink. However, it should be SAFE to consume, and may have turned to vinegar. Give it a sniff, and if it smells very sour, you may be able to use it like Balsamic vinegar. However, I'd be inclined to dump it down the drain. Next time you have a partially used bottle, throw the extra in the freezer within a week, and you can use it for cooking later on.

If you opened it at Christmas it would be fine I think. I have a bottle of white wine I use for cooking and its been open at least 6 months and is still good.

I just wanted to know a general question about it. I am not much of a wine drinker, so I have no idea what to make of this. I opened a bottle of red wine at Christmas, hardly anyone drank any, I tucked it away, I was just clearing out my shelf of many mysterious drinks (beer, vodka, schnapps, etc, most I do drink). Anyways, since it's been open since Christmas day, is it still good to drink? It made my stopper get some green stuff on it, I am more familiuar to vodka, crown royal that it's still good to drink even years after it was opened, but wines for some reason, I don't know if it's like vodka or pop. Leave pop open long enough, it will go flat.

I wasn't sure, so I did dump it out, but still, if anyone has an opinion on this, it would be great.
