What drink makes you feel really good on a cold night? Could it be - mild alcoholic beverages, hot chocolate (pictured above) , tea, coffee, cocoa, milo? What drink really warms your insides and makes you feel at peace with the world? Yes we do have chilly nights here in the Caribbean - especially on my island which is quite close to North America. Cold nights have arrived and will last until February at least - so I will be indulging in my feel good beverages - which include - herbal teas, hot chocolate and closer to Christmas - homemade gingerbeer. What are yours?

I'd probably have hot chocolate if I were out but at home I'd have Milo.

When I was a child I loved Ovaltine, but the Ovaltine these days tastes inferior to the product of long ago - that is the reason why I now prefer Milo.

@Kandae11 I never got to like Ovaltine. I find some foods aren't as nice nowadays but I wonder if it is that my taste buds have changed.

@Kandae11 Oh..a very old and nice drink. I think many of the new generation does not know about this drink. It was my mom's favorite drink. We were all drinking it together. The later drinks in the market stand nowhere in the competition with this drink. Is it still available there? I have not seen any in the Indian markets.

I drink hot chocolate, sometimes when cold. But also drink cold drinks like water, chocolate milk, juice.

I know I should be drinking more water - even during the summer I doubt that I get my eight glasses a day . but I do eat a lot of fruits.

In the fall I like hot mulled apple cider but most of the time it is just coffee.

I'd have to say that my choice on a chilly night would be hot chocolate or a decaf coffee

During such cold nights, I take hot Coffee and sometimes I prefer to have Rum also. They are good and make us withstand the cold.

As much as I love coffee I can’t have anything with caffeine at night and since I use creamer and things in my coffee I try to limit it to one a day as my face gets really red. Today I am going to make a cappuccino powder mix to enjoy as a treat once in awhile. I got the French vanilla powdered creamer I needed for the recipe when I was shopping this weekend.

We are closer to North America than the other islands - and yes it gets cooler in November through to February. These nights I actually sleep with a bit more clothing and a cover.
