What's a replacement for the wine? We don't drink alcohol. I'm surprised to see it in Turkish recipes.

To Anonymous and to Ruyanzayd;

I think there are some wrong impressions about the Turks.
Türkiye is a secular country with a Muslim majority since 1924 (for 89 years) which keeps the religion and State separate. You can consume alcohol or you can wear bikinis on the beach. You also do not have to wear a headscarf. It is not like in most of the Arab countries.

Also, you might like to know that Raki (Lion's Milk) is the popular national drink in Türkiye.

So, you can replace the wine with water. It's a personal choice and if you don't want to use wine you can replace it with whatever you want:)

Sorry for shocking you once more!
Take care.
