    Hmmm a pre-mixxed drink may not have much of a shelf life. Depends what else is mixxed in. Vodka, Scotch, Whiskey etc will last for years. Beer, wine and some liquiors (SP? the sweet ones) won't last long. I say save it for a party and test it on guests you don't like =)

    But, just in case... I found some info for you.

    Does it have the sweet n sour in it too? Cuz if thats the case Im not so sure - If its all just alcohol than its good to go - I wasnt even thinking but we have had bottles of liquor on our shelves at the bar for over 3 years (our hennessy comes to mind) and they are still good - at least we still sell it - LOL

    But seriously if it has sweet n sour in it - its prolly not good anymore
    I had something similar a few months back....

    It was just the liquor... the coke and Sweet and sour came seperately.

    AND it was only 30 proof.


    Anyway... had the place to myself for a few nights... that's what I drank the first.

    Here's what was left the next day....

    I've never had that problem. Bottles of liquor don't last a week, let alone a year with me!

    Depending on the Alcohol content, will help determine the shelf life. Because alcohol is distilled in the process, this gives it the ability to be stored for long periods of time, even if it has been opened & exposed to air.

    They alcohol content tends to not be as high in some alcohol that has sat around for years, as it will evaporte slowly.

    But to answer your question when I was a bar tender, we had some very high end Scotch, Burbon that had been in the bar for better than 6-7 yrs.
    But at $30 a shot, it didn't sell very often.
    So you will be fine.

    Aahhh... Kappy... I really would have loved to be a sommelier...
    Wine (including champagne : champagne is a wine) is so great...

    May be we would drink some wine together one fine day...
    It would be great : a wine's party with my Broncomania's friends (and girlies ).



    ps : hic... hic... hic...

    If you still hesitate, you can send me the bottle... I would taste it
