Every once in a while the topic comes up about carrying adult beverages to enjoy around a campfire or to celebrate bagging a peak or whatever. I suppose any flask would work, but a traditonal hip flask seems appropriate.

This one should hold enough:

I guess you could offset the weight of the adult beverage by leaving the water at home...

If I were you I would not consider giving her one of these hip flasks. She might take strong offense at what you are implying about the size of her hips!
