Going by the abstract only, here's a summary:

Aim: The researchers were investigating whether they could detect drugs added to drinks, using an advanced analysis technique - Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectroscopy (GCMS).

Method: They added 3 different types of sedatives (the benzodiazapines diazepam, flunitrazepam and temazepam) to 5 different drinks (an alcopop, a beer, a white wine, a spirit, and a J2O). One set of samples was kept in a fridge, and one set kept at room temperature. Then they tested them several times over a 25 day period, using GCMS, to see how long the drugs could still be detected in the drinks.

Results: The drugs were still detected under both storage conditions throughout the study period, although some drugs were more stable than others. The diazepam stayed the same in all of the drinks, except the J2O, under both storage conditions. The flunitrazepam and temazepam were also stable in all the drinks except the J2O (there was a 97% loss of temazepam and 39% loss of flunitrazepam in the J2O)

Obviously, there is more detail in the whole paper, but thats as far as I go
