    Coffee and cocoa mix.  I love both, so I make it easy on myself by combining them!

    In the UK, for me it has to be Tea. (Though I wish Tea could be a longer word as Hubs tells me my anwer preceding the bracket, was too short)   :-)

    Ooo! Alright, if it's one of those cold days where you come inside your skin feels freezing and you're glad someone invented wool clothing... Hot cocoa! And, as an added bonus, with a tiny drop of peppermint extract. Mmmmmmmmm

    That is a good question.
    I like a good cup of coffee, sweetened with honey (no sugar) any time, regardless of the weather.
    I'm not much a tea person. I've gone through phases where I drank tea regularly, but as I get older I guess I don't want to waste precious time drinking tea.  LOL
    The thought of hot chocolate on a cold winter day takes me back to days of my youth, spending hours out in the snow, then coming inside to a steaming, sweet cup of hot chocolate with little marshmallows, made ready by my mom, Sarah, who is the best mom ever.
    However, since recovering from cancer through nutrition (see my profile for more info), I try to stay away from sugar, (except for chocolate treats which I will allow myself, especially during the holidays.)
    Here is my recipe for the best hot chocolate you will ever have that doesn't contain sugar.
    Dissolve unsweetened cocoa powder in just enough water to make a paste. Heat milk (NO skim milk here) to just below boiling. Mix with paste and blend well. Add honey to taste. I use about a tablespoon for an 8 ounce cup. Then add your favorite chili powder. ? That's right, I said chili powder. I use chipotle myself (made from smoked jalapenos). If you like spicy, trust me, this is the best hot chocolate you will ever have.
