What’s the meaning of English nightcap?

English nightcap traditionally was an alcoholic drink. People had some brandy, liqueur or wine before going to bed to help them sleep better, especially on cold winter nights.

But quite often doctors prescribed warm milk, green or chamomile tea to do the job and people had them with or without some alcohol (especially liqueur).

Well, we aren’t English and the weather isn’t cold 🙂 But as foreigners we can use the tradition in a different way, right?

We are meeting and having our nightcap this Friday evening with the same idea: relax after a busy week in a company of friends, talk and play some funny games and then off we’ll go to bed.

There are no upcoming events.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Join us to see for yourself!
