Alcohol for cooking--how long does it keep?

Henrietta Stackpole | Feb 24, 200801:10 PM

I cook with all sorts of alcohol but I don't drink so it stays around for a long time. I live in Chicago, where there is an annoying law that prohibits buying small bottles (with the exception of wine).

Some of the alcohol I have on hand is: port, brandy, vermouth, whisky, ameretto, vermouth, calvados, rasperry liqueur, vodka, grand marnier and sherry. How long do these keep?

I'm not refrigerating any of these--should I be? I've been afraid to puchase coffee liqueur since I'm afraid it won't last long at all.
