No. Not usually. I have, on occasion had a port after dinner IF we were having friends for dinner. Whilst we still have friends for dinner, I don't have any port unless they ask for some. Its probably been about 30 years since I have had a drink after dinner. I do, however, have a 99.9% fat free hot chocolate every night after dinner.
No . . . never, as I do not get on with alcohol as a general rule . . BUT twice this week I have resorted to it!! Buying a house and moving is doing my head in so I needed a little nip to help me sleep. . . . however, I do know that alcohol can disturb sleep. Worked fine for me though :-)
I am on medication which reacts very badly with alcohol,so I do not drink alcoholic things at all. In the past though,I would sometimes enjoy a really top shelf scotch or a port ,if someone was there with me and also having one!
We drink wine with meals on the weekend and finish the bottle after dinner. Recently we opened a bottle of good port and would have a little each night after dinner until it was gone- didn't want it to go bad.
Of late, have had an 'Irish Coffee', which I thoroughly enjoy, & it's very expensive to have at a Restaurant!
If out, & driving myself, my limit's 1/2 glass of Red Wine. Full stop!
If I know I'm wanting to attend a 'Degustation Menu', for example, or Function, I'll organize a Chaffeur driven car, to, & fro. Much cheaper than the 'alternative'! This would only be 3 or 4 times' a year, & cost is not that much more than a cab, but FAR superior!
I refuse to travel by taxi, if I can avoid doing so. Sick of incense-smelling, & dirty interior, 'Bollywood' style music, which is refused my request to 'switch off', & a driver with just the worst BO imaginable!
I enjoy all the 'old fashioned' Liquers that one used to be able to drink with guests', post Dinner, before RBT!
Just sitting in my comfy chair, listening to a fave CD, is just bliss, to me!
...aren't I ignorant? I always thought a nightcap was a coffee. And I always thought it was a stupid idea - who could fall asleep after a coffee? No. The only thing I drink after dinner is a nice cold chocolate milk!
Moi! I can fall asleep a minute after drinking coffee, or an hour or whatever - doesnt affect me! Last night i wanted to watch something on TV but as usual it was so cold in Perth, I went to bed to watch with my dogs and electric blanket on high. Of course I was asleep in about 10 minutes at the most andf missed the show.....nothing new, with or without coffee!
After finding this question again,The last sentence should have read: 'I hope that makes sense now!' 2 nights ago I had a tall (thin) glass of Bailey's after dinner, just to use it up! So apart from a previous glass of Bailey's about a week ago, I don't have nightcaps!
