I second the Wild Turkey American Honey but they've recently changed the receipe
and I liked it much better b-4.
It was called Honey Licquor b-4 the switch.
Not near as smooth now as it was.
Really too bad as it was my fav.
I've switched to Goldschlager.
The Great White North, where we get taxed out the wazoo
I carry a mixture for my flask which holds 8 oz or 250 ml for us Canajuns- about 4 oz Grand Marnier, 2 oz of brandy and 2 oz of Kahlua or Tia Maria. Kinda like a Monte Christo coffee without the annoyance of the coffee.
I think the ABC store may be a Southern thing. Like blue laws and moonshine. You can order some things - but as far as selection they are usually smaller than a 7-11.
My hubby is in school in SW VA, and when I was visiting, we went shopping at the ABC. While you can purchase booze 24-7 here in sin city IL (proud to boast the vacation place of Al Capone and his buddies...Mineola Resort), they do have a better variety at the ABC than the local grocery (although Liquor Barn in Lexington, KY is the best!!!!!)
However, that is one of the good things about this place...you can stop at the Jewel at 5am on your way to the hunt to buy something to get you going for the hunt (gas and liquor!)...and the parking is very horse trailer friendly!

When I was in Normandy this year, I picked up a fifth of Calvados, which is apple brandy. It's 84 proof, and can put hair on your chest and strip paint from furniture. It might wind up in my flask this winter, but I'll be stingy about sharing it. It's not like I can just fly over to France again to get another bottle, and I doubt I'd find it here!
My mother is going to kill me for saying this, because I do believe you are a friend of hers, but you are a VERY brave lady for drinking that! When I took my tour of France that stuff was, well.... infamous among the men! LOL
Some other things that come to mind:
Bourbon mixed with cream
Sour Apfelkorn -- which I have only ever found in Germany or with people who have the connections to import it. I'd recommend it for warm weather.
You can also take vodka and your favorite fruits (I've tried it with Blueberries, Strawberries and Bananas) and let the fruits sit in the vodka for three days. Supposedly you should switch the Bananas out every day. Tastes a bit like a smoothie but thinner and kicks you on your butt.
