Pantry Staple: Boxed Wine

When a recipe calls for a half-cup of wine, opening a whole bottle doesn’t always make sense – especially if you don’t have company to help finish it! I found the perfect solution in these small boxed wine cubes from Target. They come in a variety of styles both red and white. Each cube contains 4 individual smaller boxes (250ml per box or approximately 1 cup each) and they cost $7.99. Not only are they the perfect pantry staple to have on hand, but they’re great to take on picnics, stash in a backpack for the end of a long day of hiking or if you’re dining alone and want just one glass of wine. Cheers!

I'm so jealous---they can't serve alcohol in Target in NJ! Boo.

It's a really great idea though!!!

What a great find. We don't have a Target here, but there is one about 40 minutes away that we visit. I'll have to see if they sell these there.

What a great idea. I've often seen those and never thought of keeping them on hand, even though that's exactly the same set-up as the chicken stock I keep around for emergencies. *smacks self on forehead* Thanks for sharing!
