Bloody Mary Mix-----how long is it good after opening?

Started 1296251310.463 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1296270145.633 by panz

I have a bottle of Master of MIxes bloody mary mix that was opened on New Year's Eve. It was barely used, and it has been refrigerated ever since. Does anyone know if it would still be okay to use? Thanks!

I don't know, but if you put enough vodka in it, you won't care. {#emotions_dlg.devil2}

LOL...Puppy beat me to it!!! I had the exact same thought!

My bloody marys always end up looking more like a salad than a drink anyway. And we like to garnish with chilled jumbo cocktail shrimp...yummy. Hey, whaddaya know...it's 5:00!

LOL to both of you!!!! I love the pic, Hope516!

I don't want to make anyone feel guilty here, but if I don't get an answer soon, I'm going to finish that bottle of bloody mary mix, and if I get sick, you're ALL going to feel bad! Okay, maybe you won't feel bad, but I really might get sick! LOL

Ok...serious answer....you are probably on the outside edge BUT if it didn't sit out on New Years...was briefly opened and put back in the fridge, then it should be ok. Does it smell ok??? If not, run out and get some fresh Bloody Mary mix (spicy V8 is best) and a small bag of frozen cooked shrimp while you are at it!!!! Dinner in a glass!

Come see us in the Lady Dane Lounge and let us know how it turns out!

I did some checking and the general answer is 1-1.5 weeks after opening if its been refrigerated. No one said longer than 2 weeks and that was pushing it. One person said that when you twist off the cap, if it sounds carbonated, it definitely is no longer good. But I would go with the 1-1.5 weeks.

Do you have any tonic in the house??!! That goes well with vodka.

Kitty, your conservative answer is probably safer! We wouldn't want to poison our new friend Sue!!!

Thanks, again! I did drink a little bit of it, and I can't tell you it necessarily tasted funny at all, but I got really nervous and threw it away.............too bad......almost a whole bottle. Oh well, better to be safe than sorry! Maybe I should just start drinking more....or more often.........just kidding!

I'm drinking a beer instead!

Probably better that you tossed it - as in the bottle into the trash!! Like Hope said, stop by the Lounge. Its a lovely place to visit!!

So does this mean that I should toss the bottle at the back of my fridge from the Christmas before last?!? I always figured that the alcohol would sterlize the old tomatoes!
