Here’s how you can make the most of your leftover wine with these toast-worthy recipes

Be it your birthday, wedding anniversary or a candlelight dinner at home with a loved one - wine is always a welcome guest at any party. But then there are those half-full glasses or bottles left to deal with post-celebrations. Let that headache not add to your hangover. Instead of pouring it all down the drain or gulping it down to drunkenness; unless you’re cool with that *wink, wink*, you can throw in a little wine in your daily meals. Substitute butter or oil with wine to sauté your veggies for some added flavour and moisture, tenderize your meats and lighten up your cakes – all this with the goodness of wine. Here are some wine-based recipes to keep the after-party celebrations going.
