Frequently Asked Questions About Midori Drinks
Does Midori Go Bad?
It’s hard to say that any liquor every really goes bad. Over time though the quality and flavor can deteriorate. The longer Midori sets on the shelf the greater the chance the flavor could fade or change. The average shelf life tends to about a year for the best quality. If you’re wondering if a bottle of Midori has gone bad, take a sniff. If the smell is off, it is no longer in its prime. I always play by the rule of when in doubt throw it out.

Most liquors don’t need to be kept in the fridge. I keep mine on the bar shelf or under the sink. You can keep it in the fridge if you want, but I personally do not.
