What does "night cap" means?


Viet Nam

In today's lesson with the slang "top off", there is this example:

"The couple stopped at a bar on their way home to top off their date with a night cap"

Could you please explain me what "night cap" mean? Does it mean an over-night hanging out ? 

Thanks in advance

Great question! A "night cap" is a drink you have before going to bed. Smile

Hehe, So, the meaning of the phrase is totally different with what I thought it would be. Thanks Amy for the clarifying
