    This is THE BEST thread!

    I have gotten some great ideas.

    I ended up carrying peppermint schnapps today because it was in the cabinet and it proved to be just what I needed on the cold wet day that we had today.

    I can't wait to go to the liquor store and try some of these other libations.

    Thanks!

    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!

    So far it's been to hot to carry a flask; it was 82 today. That cold Pumpkin Spice Ale sure tasted good once I got home!

    Not bashing - merely an observation!!! I'm cynical and jaded - I freely admit!

    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.

    To prove my claim that I can find anything on the Internet, here is the history of the ABC in Virginia:

    http://www.abc.state.va.us/admin/hist1.htm

    Tell your friends you saw it here first!

    It appears to be a very outdated Board - but like all institutions - difficult if not impossible to abolish.

    I have the perfect flask - it's a 4oz flask that fits in my Melton - I got it from Ashland Bassets.

    I dont' have a flask yet but when I do in the near future....

    Godiva Chocolate Liquor

    Or Baileys.

    Speaking of which, can anyone recommend a good place to find a small, nice flask that won't be cumbersome riding??? Where to you usually attach them??

    Anyone else on here familiar with Glogg?

    1/3 Tawny Port Wine
    1/3 Sugar and spice
    1/3 Moonshine
    Best served warm, but room temp in a pinch.

    If I were to hunt, that would be my choice.

    State-run liquor stores are not necessariy a Southern thing, or a Commonwealth thing. I live in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, which is somewhat schizoprenic about whether it's Southern or Midwestern. Our liquor stores are not run by the Commonwealth, but they are regulated with a bizarre set of laws that vary from county to county. On the other hand, when I went to school in Pennsylvania, which I believe is neither Southern nor a Commonwealth, liquor was sold in state stores.

    Back to the original question: my small flask carries Bourbon (currently Rip van Winkle 10 year old 107 proof). My saddle flask carries Rock'n'rye, the unquestionable favorite of foxhunters in these parts who do not prefer straight Bourbon. I had some left over at the end of last season, so I took it to Rolex where it was a great hit with eventing fans from around the country. The recipe is subject to personalization (and some people think it's a family secret),

    But you basically start with a fifth of Wild Turkey 101 rye whiskey, and add 4 cups orange juice, 2 cups rock candy, 1 cup lemon juice. Then you get bold and experiment. I add about 1/4 cup dark rum to mine. I know somebody who replaces some of the orange juice with grapefuit juice.

    Timely thread, I've been looking for an excuse to buy a flask. I can't wait to tell my boyfriend, "Well, honey, I need it for hunting!"

    My choice would be The Glenlivet scotch, preferably French Oak aged.

    Sorry SimpsoMatt, Pennsylvania is a Commonwealth as well

    Swan.....

    If you can not find Ginger wine (which I've never had)......

    You can find Ginger Brandy at the state store! And it will warm you from your toes to your nose!

    PA is a Commonwealth.

    And Rock N' Rye, is also a popular "cold" reliver here in the Commonweath of Pa

    I found these very lady like flasks, shopping for my Bridesmaids..

    I've recently sampled a fabulous combination, equal parts white port and amaretto.
    One thing you can give and still keep is your word.

    Something that was equally sweet and warming while we were up in the mountains was watermelon liqueur. When we stopped we had 1/2 hot chocolate with 1/2 peppermint schnapps. Quite nice if you get the chance. It warms you up inside and out! Especially in freezing temps.

    It's easy to make your own Ginger Wine if you're at all creative - Google can help you find various recipes.

    There are a few different producers of the readymade stuff, Stone's, as Thomas mentioned, and Crabbie's: Stone's, and I see now also Hutchison's (yum) are both available in Canada at the LCBO.....

    If you like sweet, fruity, AND warming...try a mixture with any of the "99" schnapps (99 Proof).

    99 Berries
    99 Bananas
    99 Oranges
    99 Cherries
    99 Apples

    My favorite of the above for flasks is 99 Bananas and Baileys. As is 99 Apples or 99 Berries with Brandy. 99 Bananas and 99 Cherries is also good with any Chocolate liqueur.

    Be careful what you mix with Bailey's in your flask...sometimes the results can get quite "interesting" after it has been sitting for a bit of time while hunting. Trust me, been there, done that, don't wanna do that again!

    YES!!!!!! Also nice with raisins, blanched almonds, and orange peel (though those are a bit chunky for a flask--a strainer would be helpful ).

    1.5 litre bottle of inexpensive dry red wine
    1.5 litre bottle of inexpensive American port
    1 bottle of inexpensive brandy or aquavit
    10 inches of stick cinnamon
    1 Tablespoon cardamom seeds
    2 dozen whole cloves
    Peel of one orange
    1/2 cup raisins
    1 cup blanched almonds
    2 cups sugar
    Garnish with the peel of another orange

    I used to drink something very similar in Germany. Warm. It was popular in the fall and winter, as the wind off the North Sea would chill you to the bone!

    You know - that might make a lovely tailgate drink. Nice and warm You could just make it in a pot beforehand and then heat it up with a camp stove.

    I'll have to keep that recipe!
