What you can do with leftover wine? Do not toss that old one as it can be good for more than just drinking. Here are a lot of uses for it.

Make wine cubes
Pour old wine into an ice cube tray, freeze and then break out the cubes when you do not want to drink a glass of wine, or use them for single servings of extra flavor on hand for soup, stew, sauces etc.
Turn it into jelly
Your choice of wine, some sugar and a pouch of liquid pectin are all it takes to make a customized flavor of wine jelly. Do not you like a little homemade champagne jelly with strawberries on the morning toast?
Dress some greens
Whisk bubbly with white vinegar, olive oil, mustard, diced onion or shallot and a pinch of sugar. It won’t even matter if your champagne has gone flat.
Tenderize meat
Red wine is a great marinade for beef. Mix with a little olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice, to taste, and add your favorite herbs.
Rinse fruits and vegetables
Wine has antimicrobial properties that help kill germs, according to food scientist Mark Daeschel of Oregon State University.
