Once upon a time, it used to be that hip flasks were just for the gents – not anymore which is why we have hip flasks for the ladies too. Gentlemen used to carry their treasured hip flasks around in the inside pockets of their coats or their dinner jackets. This is still true but oh, how times have changed. No longer something associated just with the men folk, ladies, welcome to the club! Continue reading Hip Flasks for The Ladies
Absinthe is a deliciously tasty spirit which is most certainly an acquired taste. Like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Personally I love it! It has such a unique flavour that it truly is delicious. It probably helps that it is made from some of my favourite herbs. As many of you may know, Absinthe is a very strong alcoholic drink, usually around 40-75% proof. Not one of the most popular drinking here in the UK, although the love is growing, Absinthe is incredibly popular around Europe. Yummy!
So it would seem that some people think that having a hip flask means you can just carry on as normal or, in some cases become super human – no sirree and so, we thought that we should advise you some of the things you shouldn’t do while using a Hip Flask. It’s funny how when people drink alcohol they think that they are not just invincible but entitled to do many things that they might not normally get away with.
Lets start by saying that having a hip flask hidden away in your jacket pocket doesn’t mean that you are invisible to the law. The little accessory that you pop into your pocket is not a get out of jail free card. In some cases it is more likely to land you there…
Here are just a few little things that we would advise against when you have had a day out with your friendly hip flasks;
I have heard it said that vodka is a tasteless drink and that it is not a great drink to have in your cupboard – rubbish and so this is why we thought that we would introduce you to 5 Delightful Vodka Cocktails which you may or may not have tried before. Even if you have had these lovelies before, they are sooo good that you will want them again and again and again! Here at The Pocket Hip Flask Co HQ, we do love a nice cocktail every now and again!
Cue the sun – the wonderful warm sun is out and so are we which means only one thing – hip flasks in the summer are an absolute must. Ok perhaps not a must but, they do come in very handy.
Summer is a time where most of the population start to become more outdoorsie and much more sociable. Out go the blues of the Winter which have slowly been fading through Spring and in comes a season of laughter, friends, hip flasks and a little alcohol…
There is no season where you do not have need for a hip flask – hip flasks really are an accessory for all seasons. I use the term ‘need’ rather lightly as none of us really need hip flasks, we just like them! Come rain or shine, there is always somewhere that hip flasks come in very hand. We have rather a few in our house – not alcoholics I promise we just have different sizes. You never know the available space that you have to store one.
There are a few thing to take into consideration when it comes to buying your new tool in the fight against sobriety, the first question is regrading whether the new hip flask is for you or a gift for someone else.
The reason we ask this first as deciding the type of flask really depends on what it is going to be used for. If you are purchasing this hip flask for yourself then I’m sure you have a idea in mind of the kind of flask that you would really like to own, whereas if you are purchasing for someone else then you don’t have the luxury of knowing what the recipient is after. If you know the person really well then you will be sure to pick the perfect flask for them, however as often is the case this type of gift is purchased as a retirement gift, birthday present or wedding favours and although you might know the intended recipient you might not know what they like in a flask.
