When I deglaze with any alcohol, stock and or water, I always reduce the liquid.
So it does evaporate. I did not mean i was removing any alcohol. ( I did assume I was, but that was not the reason for deglazing) I meant I was reducing or evaporating most of the liquid in the pan.
In fact if alcohol does remain and I assume your link will prove that, that makes me even happier to be deglazing these dishes! I'm after flavor and could care less if alcohol remains or not.
