Following the success of favourite whisky thread for DP, need a present for friends too - what's your favourite late-night drink? I'm thinking something straight up with ice, maybe a liqueur but not creamy like Baileys?
Quite like a Cointreau myself.

I'm a fan of sloe gin, or cherry brandy - but then I do have a very sweet tooth!

I'd like to be able to say that I drink whisky like a bad ass, but the shameful truth is that I like Amaretto. Mmmmmm sugary.

My fave is Baileys. I like Tia Maria in coffee with cream on the top. Had Limoncello (sp?) for the first time at a friend's recently and it was lush. Also like Cointreau. Infact there's not much I don't drink come to think of it!

Oooh, I love Amaretto too. The idea of whisky appeals but the reality makes me gip and wince. Perhaps I'm not sophisticated enough.
AMum - Never tried cherry brandy. Any brands to look out for?

Yes, I'd like to be able to swig it manfully while wearing black and solving gritty murders.

Or wearing something slashed to the waist and bringing men to their knees with a single glance... And not getting a hangover.

In the Autumn and winter, whisky.

LastYear - Cherry Marnier is very nice, assuming you like stuff that's sweet and fruit-flavoured!
