    I need to know the word for "flask" (the kind that you drink hard liquor out of).

    The dictionary has three entries ––
    fiola, üvegcse, laposüveg

    Which is the one I need?

    You need "laposüveg" (lit. flat bottle) and it can also be called "flaska" (pronounced in the Hungarian way, with 'sh' sound).
    (In such cases it's useful to do a Google image search for the words)

    That's a good idea I'm surprised I haven't thought of it. Thanks

    I am surprised nobody mentioned my grandfather's favourite word for it: butykos.
    If you want to use real Hungarian words, there's a chance.

    But be careful to put only good pálinka in it, this is how it should be used.;)
