Travel, Tailgating and the Mighty Flask

So it was OU / Tx weekend and while I am a proud native Texan I am a Sooner and a loyal one at that so needless to say I have had a good weekend. The weekend got me to thinking it is starting to turn to flask season. I personally keep a flask on me about this time of year to warm my self up and to loosen some of that stress as tasks and projects start to pile up.

The big thing about a flask is to choose the right beverage to enjoy though out your day or week. As we all know I am a huge fan of whiskey. Here is the thing you have to choose your whiskey well. There are a few do’s and don’ts to do to choose the best whiskey to have with you at all times.


Choose a cheap or bad tasting whiskey, because it is there to help you get through. The day and also you are not going to mix it regularly. You will get the full flavor of the whiskey as you take that swig.

Choose something that you don’t like the taste of your flask is who you are and it is your personal choice. It can be what you like don’t worry about status no one knows what you put in there and no one can truly tell what is on there.


Pick something that you’ll want to have a lot over and over again. Remember you don’t have the liberty of swithcing it up aft a few shots. You’ll need to finish it or pour perfectly good whiskey down the drain.. DON’T pour good whiskey down the drain it would be a bad luck situation and we just can’t have that or condone wasting of perfectly good alcohol.

Try and pick something mellow, unles you like the hard stuff you’ll want to savor and enjoy it not give your self a numb throat or heartburn on the go that just doesn’t work.

Personally I love Tyrconnell or Red Breast for my flask. They’re both mellow and smooth. The bottles are pretty economical so you’ll not go broke filling that flas up often. Finally they’re both Irish whiskeys that will keep you warm on these cool fall evenings.

So now that you’ve helped me fill up my flask; what is in yours? Do you prefer Rum Whiskey, Vodka, or something else. Why that?

One last thing what does your flask look like? we’d love to see pictures posted below.

See you at the bar, or out and about with one.
