  • How long does sparkling apple cider last in the refrigerator once opened? Sparkling apple cider that has been continuously refrigerated will keep at best quality for about 7 to 10 days after opening.

Yes, provided it is properly stored and the bottle is undamaged - commercially packaged sparkling apple cider will typically carry a " Best By," "Best if Used By," "Best Before", or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the sparkling apple cider will remain at peak quality.
