If I am able to drink alcohol with the meal, and it’s available and prudent, I normally like a cognac, grappa, whiskey or bourbon with my espresso, depending on what I drank with dinner. For example if beer was drank with the meal I would choose a whiskey or bourbon or bitter, if wine was drunk then a cognac or grappa or similar. I give extra points for being able to stay within a country or region.
In Germany we commonly had a bitter or schnapps (not the disgustingly sweet liqueur they sell here in the states; real, distilled schnapps) after every dinner, regardless of the fare. This was called "the digestive drink" and even appeared on some menus so.
I have yet to discover port or sherry as after-dinner drinks.
Fun poll =).
