Does alcohol lower the boiling point of water?

Alcohol has a lower boiling point than water (about 175 degrees ). If you dilute water with alcohol, the mixture will have a lower boiling point up until the alcohol completely evaporates. Should you decide to alter an existing recipe by substituting a fair portion of wine for some of the water, remember to extend the cooking time by 5 to 10 percent, depending on the alcohol's strength and the heaviness of your touch.
