I have been "allowed" to assist with Helene and Maggie's garage sale. One of the items we found was my old travel bar from my Science Fiction Convention Days.
My personal drink was always Chivas Regal, but that's a story for another time. When I checked the inside of the bar case it contained a bottle of Bacardi Gold Reserve and a bottle of DeKuyper Triple Sec. I don't know the legal stand on selling them with the portable bar, so they came out.
The problem is I had not remembered they were in the portable bar. They had been stored in a hot shipping container since May of 2000. So some of you may be wondering what condition the booze is in after being stored in bad conditions. Inquiring minds want to know! Who knows, I might need this for a story someday.
This led to my experiment in two parts. Part one - how do they taste? Personally, I don't really care for either. Even so they were horrible!
Part two - what about the alcohol? Will alcohol cook off in ten plus years?
Booze stored in a hot shipping container for ten plus years still makes a (two) wonderful Molotov Cocktail.
In case you ever wondered.
