Headed back to your room from a busy day at the park, it's not unusual to think about stopping for a nightcap before hitting the sack. A nightcap is an alcoholic beverage meant to warm and sooth you before going to bed. Frequently people choose something with a higher alcohol content, usually a liqueur or spirit. Traditional nightcaps are brandy or a cream-based liqueur or a bourbon. However Wine or Beer are also more and more common these days.
