Recycle leftover wine
"Rather than tossing out last night's unfinished wine, toss it in a bowl with some fruit, a little sugar, and maybe some brandy. Put it in the fridge and forget about it until tomorrow. Add some club soda and enjoy with brunch!" -- Marohnic
Master "fancies" and "improveds"
"Take a glass of spirit on some ice (whiskey, aged rum, or if you're a real oddball like myself, some Metaxa) and hit it with a dash or three of whatever bitters you keep handy and a healthy splash of liqueur. Wild Turkey rye, Cointreau, and Angostura? Delightful. Metaxa, Maraschino, and Chinese five spice? Yeah, you know that's gonna be tasty. Some Havana Club 7 Year, ouzo, and Peychaud's? As delicious as it is questionably legal. Look, I'm not gonna do all your work for you. The whole point is that it's always an adventure of discovery and wonderment.
