Doesn’t say on the bottle.

We never bothered to in the bar business.

Will it last long enough to go bad?

Shelf-life of two years...opened and un-refrigerated.

It should be consumed upon opening - immediately, if not sooner.

Try this with your "friends"...

Quote:
A cement mixer is a shot drink. It often consists of:
1 part Bailey's Irish Cream (Other types of alcoholic Irish cream may be substituted.)
1 part Lime juice (lemon juice may be substituted)
The drink is traditionally ingested by taking the shot of Bailey's, holding it in the mouth, then sipping the lime juice and mixing both liquids either by swirling them around in the mouth or shaking the head.[1] The drink may also be combined as a layered shot, as the lime juice is less dense than most brands of Irish Cream.
The acidic lime juice causes the cream-based Bailey's to curdle. The curdled Bailey's does not taste sour, but it does rapidly gain viscosity and stick to the drinker's teeth, reminiscent of cement.

I put it in hot coffee, and at room temperature it cools the coffee down too quickly. Might have something to do with the ratio of coffee to Bailey's though.

I found a small airline size bottle in the back of the cabinet and I don't know how long it had been there. When I opened it it was set up solid in the bottle.

Mine says store between 33-77 degrees. But maybe you need to have the half gallon to see those details.

Is this a trick question?

Seems that never has been a problem as it empties too quick to bother with refrigeration.

Flasks aren't refrigerated and they're smaller containers...

Only drink it around the holidays and I have never refrigerated it. One of our guests asked about it and I didn’t know. I drink it on the rocks alongside my coffee.

So Robie, /why/ would somebody /want/ to do this? I mean, does having only one customer and the lone bartender get so bad at the Holiday Inn bar, that they come up with stuff like this?

Speaking of bartenders, one of the guys in high school I did NOT get along with was the starting quarterback, Jeff Richardson. Funny thing, we both went out west about the same time, came back to our home town on the exact same day, both driving brand new Toyota Land Cruisers. He went to work as barkeep at my favorite bar/bowling alley/pool hall, and we became good friends.

His little brother Kurt went on to coach our high school football team.
