Ever see Marsala wine in a recipe and wonder, "Can I just drink it?" Guess what: You can sip the Sicilian beverage (especially today, on National Drink Wine Day)! It tastes great with cured meats and aged cheeses. But remember that it's fortified, so a grape spirit, such as brandy, has been added to preserve the wine. There are dry and sweet versions: Dry has a rich, smoky flavor that's ideal for sauces (think chicken marsala); sweet is sometimes used to give tiramisu its boozy kick. Try using it in these dishes:
