Alcohol Substitutions

Often, we see recipes calling for wine, brandy or liquor. For many reasons, lots of people prefer not to use alcohol. Here are some substituitions you can use:

Instead of beer, you can use chicken broth or beef broth

Instead of white wine, you can use apple juice or carrot juice

Instead of red wine, you can use 1/2 cup of grape juice with 2 teaspoons of red wine vinegar

Instead of Kahlua, you can use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon chocolate extract or substitute 1/2 to 1 teaspoon instant coffee in 2 tablespoons water for 2 tablespoons Kahlua

Instead of brandy, you can use water, white grape juice, apple cider or apple juice, diluted peach or apricot syrups

Instead of peach brandy, you can use syrup from canned peaches in heavy syrup; or peach preserves

Instead of sherry, you can use apple cider; non-alcoholic vanilla extract; coffee; or coffee syrup

Instead of amaretto, you can use almond extract

Instead of rum, you can use water, white grape juice, pineapple juice, apple juice or apple cider, or syrup flavored with almond extract
