Question
Is it safe to reuse vinegar with sugar added

Answer
Hello there!
You may reuse vinegar with sugar depending on the original use you gave it.

Vinegar and sugar are safe for a long time because bacterias can not live in an acid environment.

If previous use was to marinade, you should not use it for anything else.
If the vinegar and sugar combo was in contact with any type of food, specially protein products, discard it.
