[RPG] n “Over-flowing Cup” in D&D


I am running a game in which there is a player character that is basically a functioning alcoholic. I have made a special rule that requires them to be above a certain level of inebriated to function normally, and if they fall below that level, they get withdrawals, hangovers, etc; which affects their ability to function normally.

For the most part, this is working well. It makes for interesting gameplay, however there has been a few situations where the player has left the party to go "refill", by simply hanging out in the bar for a few hours, while the rest of the party continue whatever they are doing. This has led to the player missing out on a few interesting situations.

This is where I came up with an idea – give the player a flask (or something similar) that can be filled with a liquid of their choice, that either

  1. Holds a large amount of fluid (enough to last a long time)
  2. Never empties

This way the player has to go for fewer "pit-stops" to refill their tankard.

Is there any items like this in D&D? And if so, how rare are they?

(For the record, I am using the 5e system, but if this item exists within other editions I'm open to it).

Alchemy Jug

The Alchemy Jug is an uncommon wondrous item.

You can use an action and name one liquid from the table below to cause the jug to produce the chosen liquid. Afterward, you can uncork the jug as an action and pour that liquid out, up to 2 gallons per minute. The maximum amount of liquid the jug can produce depends on the liquid you named.

The specifics are in the DMG on page 150.

I believe this is the closest thing to what you are asking for.
