    What caffeinated beverage do you drink to start your day?

    I used to get weird looks for my Red Bull at 8 am, but now I'm finding energy drinks in the early morning becoming more common and coffee less.

    How do you start your day?

    i voted iced coffee, but it isn't really iced, but it sure isn't hot either. i go for my own "nectar of the gods". a few months ago archaeology magazine published an article about the origins of chocolate. the researchers found residue on mayan pots that showed they made a chocolate and coffee beverage, most likely with ritual purposes and consumed by priests and/or wealthy. so i came up with one i make with: sugar and m&m's (put them in the mug). use the coffee to melt it all, stir well. double the volume with cold milk. yum.

    A pound of flash pasteurized egg whites, two cups of black coffee, and a liter of water gets me started in the morning. If I am still dragging ass by 11, I down a 5 hour energy shot.

    Plunger coffee with milk and one sugar. Or if I'm not feeling the sugar, (very) strong tea with milk and no sugar.

    I'll hammer down a couple of Red Bulls or cans of V when I'm driving for a few hours somewhere, otherwise I stay away from them because one can accounts something like 40% of your daily average sugar intake.

    I stopped drinking diet soda and switched to coffee. I never was a coffee drinker until I had it with Bailey's and since I stopped drinking alcohol, I found the Bailey's non-alcohol coffee creamer works fine- I wasn't using Bailey's to catch a buzz, anyway. I tried some other chocolate machiado crap and it's OK, but not like Bailey's. I have had Cameron's coffees from a local grocery store chain and they're decent but I went to Alterra's, which is a local chain of coffee stores/cafes and bought some Nicaraguan blend. I had a sample that was black and it had the caramel flavor of a good dark beer-definitely more body than some 3 lb can of crap from a grocery store shelf. It's more $ but they donate $1 from every pound and I know the owners, so,.....
