Wines have long been a passion of ours, and we think it’s safe to say that many people would choose to sip a glass of one of these wines.
But if you’re just starting out and are wondering what to do with the last of your wine bottles, here are some simple wine substitutes that will give you a nice taste of the good stuff without costing you a fortune.
Grapefruit Juice from the Grapefruit and Almond Salad Source The first time we tried grapefruit juice was when we were on the hunt for the perfect dessert.
This fruit is delicious in a variety of ways, and its sweet and fruity flavor pairs beautifully with many savory dishes.
But it’s especially delicious on a salad because it pairs well with chicken, shrimp, and other proteins that are often served in salads.
Red Wine from the Italian Wine Cellar Source This is the perfect choice if you are looking for a new wine to start a glass with.
Red wine is a little sweeter and slightly less acidic than white wine, so it has a subtle flavor that complements the sweetness of the other ingredients.
You can use red wine as a substitute for other kinds of wine, like sparkling water, to make sparkling wine.
White Wine Substitute from the White Wine Store: Red Wine and Grapefruit Cucumber Cream Sauce (and More!)
Source If you love red wine, but are looking to get a little less sweet with your next glass, there’s a way to go that still pairs nicely with the other flavors in this sauce.
You just need to be careful not to overdo it, as it can be too sweet for a glass.
Strawberry Cream from the Strawberry and Orange Creamery, Inc. source This simple strawberry and orange cream is really great on a plate.
It’s not as sweet as white wine or grapefruit, but it pairs wonderfully with any food or drink.
Blackberry Meringue from the Blackberry and Creamery Source Meringues are one of the best ways to bring together the flavors of fruit and cream, so if you want to get the most out of your fruit, make this a dessert.
It makes a great dessert, and it’s just a little too sweet to drink as a cocktail, but if you really like a good dessert, you can make this into a dessert with strawberries and whipped cream.
Pomegranate Puree from the Pomegranic Company Source Pomegrenic makes a delicious Pomegaric Puree that pairs well on a variety (and many different) desserts.

The cheese is a slightly sweeter, more acidic product that pairs perfectly with many of the flavors in ice cream and ice cream drinks.
Black Pepper and Lemon Peel Soup from the South Side Tea Company, Inc source This soup is a classic soup that is easy to make and tastes fantastic.
It also makes a nice, hearty soup.
