If you have cider vinegar and red wine, you can make a red wine vinegar substitute with ease.

This past weekend I was preparing to make my Guinness Braised Beef recipe for a dinner in with friends, and when I was half way done prepping, I realized that I didn’t have any red wine vinegar. Ugh. I will often substitute red wine vinegar with white wine vinegar, as I find the flavours quite similar, but I didn’t have white wine vinegar either (clearly I need to grocery shop). I didn’t have time at that moment to run to the store to buy more, so I needed a quick fix. After some quick research I discovered that you can in fact make your own red wine vinegar substitute right at home.
Yes. If you have cider vinegar and red wine, you can make a red wine vinegar substitute with ease. And after a lot of reading, I also discovered that if it’s just flavour you need, you can substitute the red wine vinegar with only red wine. But if you require the acidity of the vinegar as an emulsifier, like in salad dressings, this cider vinegar/red wine substitution works great!
This recipe makes a nice substitute for red wine vinegar. Yield is 4 tbsp.
- 3 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp red wine
- Mix together the cider vinegar and red wine, and proceed with your recipe.
