Cooking Without Alcohol: Substitutes for red and white wine

What do you do when a recipe calls for wine and you don't have any on hand? Whether you're actively avoiding alcohol or you simply ran out, in most cases you can substitute another liquid. First, it's useful to think about the function of wine in the recipe. Does the wine add acidity, sugars, depth, brightness? Is it used to provide moisture, tenderize meat, or to deglaze a pan? Knowing, or even guessing at, this can help you decide on a good substitute. Here are a few guidelines, but we encourage you to experiment and get a feel for your particular ingredients and tastes.
