Three Post-Dinner Treats Our Editors Love for the Holidays
Surprise your guests with these post-feast treats.
One of our favorite things about Thanksgiving dinner is the deliciously content lull that takes place sometime after dessert has been served but before all of the dishes have been corralled into the kitchen. It’s the perfect time to bring out a post-party tray, which might include an invigorating nightcap to fuel the clean-up ahead or a final nibble of something special. Our editors shared their favorite post-feast treats—because there’s always room for one more bite, especially around the holidays.
Forthave Spirits Brown Coffee Liqueur
Associate Restaurant Editor Oset Babür usually drinks Forthave’s amaro, but Daniel de la Nuez and Aaron Fox's caffeinated collaboration with Café Integral with notes of dark chocolate and almonds is perfect for chilly nights in. $28 at dewineshop.com
Cacao & Cardamom Bonbons
Pakistani-American chocolatier Annie Rupani infuses her confections with ingredients she grew up using. Assistant Editor Nina Friend loves her decadent bonbons, especially the Speculoos and Coco Curry flavors. $32 at cacaoandcardamom.com
Rose Masala Chai
Brothers Ani and Ayan Sanyal run NYC’s Kolkata Chai Co., where the menu is packed with masala chai. Restaurant Editor Khushbu Shah’s favorite post-meal pick-me-up is their blend of Assam black tea bolstered with cinnamon, green cardamom, and dried rose petals. $20 at kolkatachai.co
