    Default Hip Flask Recipes please

    Curious as to what you guys fill your flasks with over there? We're into our first month of hunting and already the old favourites are getting a bit boring. Best so far is home-made feijoa vodka, and the other really common ones over here are port (of course!), port and whiskey - with or without the addition of Green Ginger Wine. New ideas most welcome

    Equal parts of blackberry brandy & vodka (or bourbon if you prefer); or 2 parts whisky to 1 part cherry brandy. Heck, we've been known to use any drink recipe we like. (finished our season with flasks of amaretto sour!)

    Somewhere I have a recipe for something called Doc's Hunt Medicine - it's amazing, I'll try to find it for you!

    I have horrid memories of swigging merrily from someone's flask some years ago, only to find it was straight cherry brandy. Absolutely hate it! Now I always have a sniff of foreign flasks before committing myself to a drink! Would love to get your Doc's Hunt Medicine recipe!!

    Wow! That's some serious medicine! Will find a couple of friends to contribute ingredients, and we'll give it a go. Thanks (I think!!!)

    Oh, and my favorite is a nice Irish Liquor such as Irish Mist or Celtic Cross. Celtic Cross is usually cheaper and they taste much the same.

    Another option is a 1/2 and 1/2 mix of Butterscotch Schnapps and Apple Pucker Schnapps. Tastes like a tart caramel apple. I like this one for Basseting for some reason.

    An excellent flask filler to warm the cockles of your heart (and oh-so-trendy!)

    2 parts Cognac (or whiskey, bourbon, or rye)
    1 part St Germaine (elder flower liqour that is lovely. Not overly floral or sweet, just yummy)
    a few drops of bitters

    My husband won a door prize at a fundraiser. It was a bottle of liqueur called St Germain. I can only drink alcohol if it is pretty well disguised so I was surprised when I could actually sip this stuff straight. It's only 20% alcohol so not as potent as whiskey or brandy and such but gets the job done without pain!

    I remember my parents serving a cocktail that involved creme de cacao, creme de menthe and probably some version of whiskey or bourbon. I'll have to experiment and see if I can come up with something.
    I also have a bottle of Zinfandel port at home that I've never used...perhaps that is flask material?

    One of the members of our hunt puts one called "The Whip" in his flask. Any one know the recipe?
