Make a bad tasting wine palatable. A great thing to remember at parties. This is an old trick I learned in bartending school (which helped pay my way through college). Recipe adopted 8/2006.


  1. Use a fresh-cut wedge of either lemon or lime to attend to a wine with a taste you do not care for.
  2. I do not recommend using more than 3 to 4 drops per glass because this may make the wine's flavor worse.
  3. This remedy has saved me at many dinner parties.
  4. Cheers!

Thanks for the tip FitQueen, I didn't have a poorly tasting glass of wine but this tip did enhance the flavour very nicely.

Pretty nifty... (Although bringing my own bottle solves this problem =) )
