After dinner drinks enhance the celebration and can aid in digestion of a heavy meal. After dinner drinks also leave guests with a warm and fuzzy feeling about their dining experience. Traditional after dinner drinks include Sambuca, Frangelico, Baileys, Grand Marnier, Irish Coffee, cognac, dessert wines and single malt scotch. Traditional non-alcoholic after dinner drinks include coffee, tea, cappuccino and expresso.
Suggestive selling should include both desserts and after dinner drinks to appeal to the entire group. Different guests will desire different ways to finish the meal. If one person orders, a chain reaction is likely to ensue with the other guests at the table.
