I used to be big on Manhattans - both sweet and dry.

Potato vodka from the freezer; Calvados; Cognac; single malt whisky, especially the island malts.

Calvados goes well with autumn.

Goldschlager
Anisette
Frangelico
Baileys on the rocks
White Russian

On a side note, one of my favorite drinks is a B-52:

1) 1/2 jigger Kahlua
2) 1/2 jigger Grand Marnier
3) 1/2 jigger Bailey's Irish Creme

Use an inverted spoon to gently layer the alcohol on top of each other. Start with the Kahlua, then Grand Marnier, then Baileys. The Grand Marnier will float on top of the Baileys, the Baileys will float on top of the Kahlua.

Works best in a small tulip or demitasse glass. Drink it all at once, tastes smooth going down, hits your gut like a 1000 pound bomb........warms ya up quick!!!

I started this thinking about alcoholic drinks, especially those you can just pore out and enjoy. But I do make hot chocolate for DW and myself, recipe:

Pore out 2.5 cups of skim milk into large measuring cup
Microwave for about 4 to 5 minutes
While microwave is going put 1 heaping teaspoon of sugar and heaping teaspoon of Sharffenberger Chocolate mix into mugs
When milk is really hot or boiling take out and skim off any slight milk layer that might have developed
Pore into mugs and serve

This is about the most I ever do in the kitchen

Brandy, whisky or even the bottle of wine which we drink while we eat dinner. Right now I have a glass of wine and it is 10.43 pm Hong Kong time. I used to like Bailey's but it is too fattening.

I don't know anything really about whisky being a glass-a-day at dinner wine type. What are decent, not too pricey, whiskeys to try?

Hi Chris, you mean with the hot chocolate? Haven't tried it but it sounds good. Imagine one would add that after heating the milk to hold on to some of that alcohol one payed for.

Isbcal, I usually take Chivas Regal and I only have after dinner drinks when I am at home since when I eat out, I would have wine during dinner and thus would be too "high" for after dinner drinks.

For over 45 years, but not every night, we'd have a 2oz liquor glass filled with Drambuie. The best place and time to sit with it is over looking the river at sunset. Fortunately the mile wide river runs 100 yards in front of our home. Sipping in this fashion is so soothing to the tastebuds and the soul.

Sounds like something I'll try, thanks. I looked Chivas Regal up and it's from Scotland. I'm a big fan of the Isabel Douhousie series which takes place in Edinburgh and is written by McCall Smith. He mentions Scotch whiskeys in his books from time to time.

During the cooler months, my wife and I enjoy a small glass of port, or a drink called a French Connection, which is one part cognac and one part amaretto.

Sherry
Port
Cognac

Any good brands to suggest? I've done all 3 but haven't a clue which brand to go for nowadays.

Decaf espresso, or I won't sleep. (As compared to the breakfast and lunch espressos, or the midmorning shot, or the afternoon break... )

My favoring hot after-dinner drinks include hot chocolate, chai tea and herbal teas (verbena, chamomile, mint, linden flowers, etc...). A cup of coffee with a shot of Bailey's would do nicely as well.

I have to admit, despite my suggestions, that I never have an after dinner drink these days other than decaf coffee or hot tea. My tastes run to a martini before dinner if out in a restaurant or a glass or two of wine with my meal if I am at home and it is a Friday or a Saturday.
There was a mention of Calvados. I really liked it the couple of times I have had it, but our (groan) state stores here don't seem to stock it. I suppose I could special order it, but I am a bit reluctant to become a special order liquor store patron.

I'm not a hard liquor drinker at all, so no whiskey or Scotch for me.

I've been recently introduced to Beirao. Very smooth flavor.
