Feeling like having smoothie, open my fridge to get my strawberries and blackberries out and I found I have a small bowl of blackberry red wine reduction. Best use it as I don’t like wasting food.
Google: “What is the best red wine for reduction? Red wines like merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and pinot noir are the most common to use for a red wine reduction sauce because they are woody, slightly sweet, full-bodied, and on the drier side. A red zinfandel tends to be too sweet for a red wine sauce, but it can come down to personal preference.”
A while ago my friend sends me a message that say be courageous in the Lord. Here’s my courage I am adding my leftover red wine reduction to make my smoothie. I am surprise that it’s taste great and love it. I am sharing it with you. Enjoy!!!!
