Clamato Juice

As if tomato juice wasn't revolting enough, some marketing genius at Motts(r) decided that what people really want is a beverage consisting of tomato and clam juice!!

My brother is one of the approximately 17 people worldwide who actually consume this mephitic abomination. Two others would be my mother and father, both of whom are dead (coincidence?).

Anyway, he called me the other day to ask how long an opened bottle of this swill remains potable, as if this is one of the first things chemists learn in grad school. Since I don't have a clue, I put it to you, my betters, in the hope that someone can answer this burning question: Just how long can a previously-opened bottle of clamato juice stay in the refrigerator before morphing into "Botulomato?"

Cheers,

Bizz

According to the Clamato website...

What is the suggested shelf life of Clamato?
We mark our bottles with a production code stating the day, place and time that they
are made. The production code is located either on the cap or shoulder of the bottle.

WP20209 12:48 (or) T20209
WP (or) T: Denotes where the Clamato was made
2: The last number of the year it was made, 2002
02: The month it was made, February
09: The day it was made, 09th
12:48: Is the time of day it was made
Before Opening: We suggest using the Clamato within a 12 month period of time
from the production code date.
After opening: We suggest using Clamato within a 2 to 3 week period of time.

Bolding mine.

Sadly, not true. Many Canadians are addicted to the "Bloody Caesar", a Bloody Mary made with Mott's Clamato juice rather than tomato juice. This is true to the point where it can be difficult to obtain a REAL Bloody Mary in this country. I've actually been asked if I'm from the States when I've ordered a Mary.

Sigh....

Now that you have your answer, I can't help but be reminded of The Simpsons:
Homer : Now what do you have to wash that awful taste out of my mouth?
Vendor : Mountain Dew or crab juice.
Homer : Blecch! Ew! Sheesh! I'll take a crab juice.

Ahh, you inscrutable Canadians.....

ok..."bloody" as in tomato juice, which is red, like blood.

"Caesar" as in clam juice, which, um,...comes from the sea...erm....and which, (furrows brow in thought)...borders Italy, and......let's see....Italy's capitol is Rome.....and Julius Caesar used to be the Emperor!!!

OK!!! I get it now.....

Bloody Ceasers! By God, sir, if you impune the essential perfection of a finely crafted Bloody Ceaser I shall have to have my seconds call upon your seconds! Hrmph!

Few things make living on this planet more tolerable than a huge Bloody Ceaser with all the trimmings.

Ahhhhhh.......

I heard from my brother-in-law (who taught me how to make them) That they were invented at Ceaser's Palace, thus the name. Take that for what it's worth.

Oh yes, Merry Christmas.

I have swayed two hardened NYDopers over to the goodness that is the Caesar. Damned American bars tell me 'we don't serve salads' when I've ordered it.

Many Albertans will drink beer with Clamato juice. Shut up, it's goooood!

A Caesar is most assuredly not "a Bloody Mary with Clamato instead of tomato juice."

It's the horseradish that matters. The clam juice is just in there to throw y'all off.

Also from Richard Jeni:

Somebody tasted perfectly good tomato juice and went, "Hmmm, needs fish..."

CLAMATO I love that yummy concoction! A splash of vodka, and you're good to go.

Now if they would only sell it in institutional size containers, e.g. gallon or better. :mmm:
