Can you drink cooking wine?

Answer

While it is possible to drink wine intended for cooking, according to About.com, these wines are not worth drinking. In some regions, however, teenagers have a history of buying cooking wines to get drunk because no identification is required.

Cooking wines are often cheap and salty and sometimes incorporate various spices and herbs that alter the taste of the wine. About.com advises against using these wines even for cooking, suggesting that no one should cook with a wine they would not drink. Because of their high salt content, cooking wines are considered non-potable. As a result, many states do not require identification to buy it and allow its purchase with food stamps.
