I seldom drink soft drinks but I like to have some on hand for friends who enjoy them.
I put a plastic bottle of diet coke in the fridge for friends the other day. They opted for other beverage options and the soda was never opened.
Can I bring it back to room temperature and store in my pantry? Or will that compromise the product? (I'm thinking about how beer shouldn't be stored at room temp. if it has been chilled - or maybe that's an old wives tale?)
Thanks - real estate in my fridge is hard to find so I'd just as soon not store the bottle there for months!
