Do You Enjoy Nightcaps?

On Sunday night I sat down to watch the season premiere of Mad Men with complete elation. The show is a wonderful glimpse into the 1960s, not only society and fashion, but also food! On this episode, Don (aka Bill), Salvatore (aka Sam), and a couple of cute stewardesses finished their fine dining experience with nightcaps. Nightcaps are essentially an after dinner drink, like a brandy or Irish cream. While I am not a huge brandy drinker, I love to finish a rich dinner with a dessert wine like port. Do you occasionally indulge with a nightcap? If so, what is your drink of choice?

I had a nightcap last night! Went to dinner at Bar Jules, then headed over to Absinthe for a whiskey. It was fun.

Only on Christmas Eve, actually...I drink a small snifter of good Cognac. Otherwise, I'm more of an aperitif person...I prefer to drink before dinner.

Too sweet and the alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle. Not worth it!

i drink (pretty often), but i don't like nightcaps...i tend to stop drinking earlier in the evening if i sense the night will come to a close soon because i hate being hungover and it really helps curb that, and i don't particularly love brandy, irish cream port etc. so i just don't bother
