I originally used the term “Mickey” instead of flask, but it seems that it’s a bit more of a Canadian-specific drink-related term than I thought, like May Two Four (TwoFer), A cube (12-pack of bottled beer), and many others.
“# Mickey, a term for a 375 ml bottle of alcohol in Western Canada and Ontario. In Eastern Canada a mickey is a single shot of alcohol, packaged in an individual bottle.”
Don’t confuse this with a Texas Mickey, also a Canadian term.
I’m thinking of something to just bring a standard few shots of whiskey with me every time I go on an overnight, no matter the trip. I don’t get drunk when I go camping, and I’m disgusted at finding broken beer bottles in the middle of the wilderness that I love, but I love a bit of Irish cream or whiskey in the evenings.
I missed it this time, and in the absence of cigars and apple cider, I found myself wanting a bit of a taste around the fire.
I don’t care how old this post is when you read it, if you’ve got a suggestion, please let me know.
Something slim, and not too much capacity, around the 200-300 ml range should do me fine.
Or should I just get a small drink canister, like a Nalgene-style or the fuel-bottle type ones?
Oh, speaking of which, there’s an interesting post I came across on the whole Nalgene/Lexan thing.
I think I’ll hang on to my old beat-up 1.8L bottle myself.
