What Is a Good After-Dinner Liquor?

Many of the most popular after-dinner liquors are cordials, which are created by using a base spirit and infusing it with fruits, spices or herbs. Popular cordials include Amaretto (almond-flavored), Kahlúa (coffee-flavored), Grappa (grape-flavored) and Chambord (raspberry-flavored).

Some people enjoy serving or mixing cordials with coffee as a way to relax after a meal. For those who want a dessert drink, port (a red wine that is fortified with brandy) and Bailey’s Irish Cream are sweet choices. Brandy, which is distilled from wine or fermented fruit juice, provides a less sweet, warmer taste. Scotch, bourbon and whiskey are also good after-dinner drinks.
