Coffee and red wine combo

Featured Posts

My weekly ration of red wine per week arrived last night, so I had the pizza in one hand and the Shiraz in t'other, poured a small glass of red, came back and topped it up to make it about half a bottle of red wine, unfortunately somehow it got mixed with my black coffee, so now I am trying to think of coq au vin with red wine/coffee gravy. I can't drink it, but I can't bring myself to pour it down the sink!

any other ideas?

Make a chilli and add a bit of dark chocolate too.

Turns out there are quite a few recipes where you mix coffee and red wine - I just fed "red wine and coffee recipes" into DuckDuckGo and got sone rather yummy ideas. 

 

Coffee and red wine seems to be all the thing with beef so I see no reason why you can't adapt a coq au vin to a richer LadyG reinvention. 

 

Let's face it penicillin was found by accident and took the world by storm.

I've got a steak in the fridge, had a wee piece for breakfast, so will keep the red wine and coffee in the fridge and do a Steak Josephine with baked potatoes on Friday, plenty of other things for a sauce, including a bar of dark choc with chilli!

Other optometrists are available. My local one is very good (but she doesn't sponsor referees!).

I'm told that Red Bull and Vodka has a startling effect as the stimulant fights with the intoxicant - I'm teetotal so I wouldn't know!

I've never tried Red Bull, as I don't like sugary type drinks and my voddie is best with tonic, ice and lemon., though I do a mean bloody mary.

In Scotland, Buckfast was very popular with alcoholics until the price changing laws of scotland kicked in,  I did buy a bottle once, it wasn't cheap, undrinkable, like warm Vimto, but made an excellent sauce. 

I kid myself that I am being "cordon bleu", but it's just an excuse to buy a nice bottle of wine, unfortunately the sulphites in wine don't do me any good, so I  just limit my intake.

Yes.and Lidl do one, but not ASDA, who deliver my essentials. The trouble with wine is that it is too "easy" to drink,  a whole bottle can evaporate in less than 24 hours,  but a bottle of whisky can last quite a bit longer, and really, overall I prefer spirits but my best stews / sauces all have a good splosh of beer/wine/cider in them.

A couple of anchovies slipped into the bottle or a whelk on a cocktail stick in the glass (replace with a little umbrella for special occasions) will sort that little problem out for you. :cheers:

I recognise that from my first year agriculture, it's not a worm, it's very like the larval stage of the chafer beetle
