Q: What can you do with cheap brandy? Can you cook with it?

I'm looking for ways to use a bottle that's not good enough for sipping.

Editor: Erin, absolutely. Use it to deglaze pans after cooking meat or onions, like in these recipes:

Braised Goat Shanks with Prune, Shallot, and Brandy Reduction
French Onion Soup

Readers, any other good tips for cooking with brandy?
