Like most braised beef dishes, the liquid for a daube can be almost anything you wouldn’t mind drinking, except maybe for Coke or coffee. You can even use a mixture of liquids: the ends of bottles of red and white wines, sherry, Madeira, full-bodied beer (though not with the wine), chopped peeled tomatoes, hard cider, apple juice, wine vinegar, broth, concentrated broth and meat glaze, leftover roasting juices, or even chic verjuice, the juice of underripe grapes popular in the Middle Ages
