The sugar date night is never complete without a proper nightcap! When the expected “would you like to come in for a drink” question comes up, you’ll be well prepared.
Stock your wet bar with these must-have cocktails and spirits to loosen nerves and really impress your date.
Nightcap Option 1: Bottle ‘O Wine
Wine is the perfect go-to. Its aromatic, can compliment almost every meal and/or dessert imaginable, and makes a fantastic addition to your weekly Netflix ‘N Chill.
There’s never a reason to fear the wine aisle. If someone is eyeing the shelf just as long as you are, ask their opinion. At the worst, you’ll get buzzed slowly. And if your choice really suits the tastebuds of your date—you’ll be shocked when the bottle is done!

Nightcap Option 2: Martini
All hail the olive-bedecked martini!
We agree with Bond and opt for the shaken, not stirred variety. This drink is definitely for the show-offs. Not only does dropping shots from high angles and shaking the concoction in ways that show how much time you’ve put into arm day at the gym work in your favor. Your efforts actually make the drink taste great. So, shake away!

Nightcap Option 3: Gin & Tonic
A twist of lemon and a sprig of rosemary go a long way with this hard-hitting cocktail. Nothing says I like to party–but I’m sophisticated quite like a Gin & Tonic. We love the herb-y taste of a bold gin mixed with the effervescence of a good tonic water. This drink is sure to help you both “unwind” from a busy day of shopping.
Feeling creative? Throw in goodies like freshly sliced cucumber or hit Whole Foods for some punchy Juniper Berries to really blow your date’s mind!

Nightcap Option 4: Old Fashioned
Are you feeling connected with your inner Mad Men? That’s cool, we are too.
The tried and true Old Fashioned is sure to drive any dapper daddy crazy! There’s something about a bold, slow-sipping bourbon that just naturally invites conversation. Whether you’re cozied up in front of a fireplace or nestled on your favorite couch, the notes of orange and angostura are sure to create that warm, fuzzy feeling…

Nightcap Option 5: Champagne
We all deserve to indulge in a nice bottle of bubbly. Champagne is great for use as an end of the night drink served with fresh fruits. That gives you the perfect excuse for feeding, kissing, and all that cutesy stuff. Or, once the night is done and you’re craving the hair of the dog that bit ya, prep sparkling mimosas for a sweet morning treat.
