If you're hosting the holiday bash this year, heads up. Buying the booze is a less daunting task because now we know what to do with all the leftover bottles after the party - that is if there are any leftover. Of course, we could drink it... wine lovers might prefer this option... or we could repurpose it! Real Simple has a couple of tips and tricks for salvaging every sip down to the last drop.

When freezing your wine be careful pouring into an ice cube tray, it can be a messy task. Try not to fill to the brim; this will avoid spills and overlapping cubes. Also, since these are going in the freezer, cover with Saran Wrap to guarantee long-lasting freshness and to prevent any crystallization from forming. Once frozen, these portioned little cubes are perfect for recipes that call for a dash of rich, red wine. You can also reuse your wine by heating it up to create a sweet syrup reduction. It's the perfect top to frozen yogurt, ice cream, and breakfast favorites such as waffles, pancakes, or french toast. Yum!
