Oh looks good, just wondering if you can substitute 1 bottle Beaujolais with something like dark rum or cardodian spiced peach sauce and if it would be good, considering the Beaujolais has a nutty/fruity taste when burned down.

Well - sure you could - but I think I'd maybe just use a cup or so of rum - think of the strength of rum versus wine - and increase the beef broth. Same with the spiced peach liqueur.

Here's a recipe for a Caribbean Orange/Rum sauce I use with jerked chicken/fish - note the quantity of rum versus the orange juice -

CARIBBEAN ORANGE AND DARK RUM SAUCE

makes about 2 cups

1T olive oil
1 minced shallot
2oz.dark rum
2cups orange juice
1tsp. molasses
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. soy sauce
¼ habenero chile minced
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. worchestershire
¼ tsp. allspice
cracked black pepper

In a 2 quart pan, heat olive oil, add shallot and cook for 1 minute; remove the pan from the heat; add the rum, and carefully return the pan to the flame; the rum will ignite; when the flame extinguishes, add the orange juice, molasses and habenero, bring to a simmer, and whisk in the cornstarch and soy sauce mixture to thicken. Season with salt, allspice, pepper, and worchestershire.
Serve as a dipping sauce with spicy foods like jerk; also makes a good glaze for grilled chicken or fish.

Hmm, the alcohol content doesnt usually make a differance as it all burns off, but then again there is a considerable differance when cooking with wine and rum, only experimenting would awnser this question.

I wasn't referring to the alcohol content between wine and rum, but the flavor - wine is a subtle, 'back of the tongue' taste, whereas rum, even a little, is a 'wow'! right in your face flavor. I think that subbing out rum in equal amounts for the wine would overpower the rest of the sauce. Same goes goes for other 'hard' alcohols, like whiskey or bourbon.
