Glass of wine or water for me. Sometimes a cup of tea.

decaf (or caffeine free) tea or coffee. tea is especially good hot, i find that hot drinks tend to tire me out (why i like drinking iced coffee in the morning). unless you're not going straight to bed, in which case i might go with a fully caffeinated tea, but fully caffeinated coffee tends to keep me up for a little while, so i wouldn't reccomend it.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned a hot toddy. It's supposed to be a relaxing end to your day.

Sleepy time tea, chamomile tea or wine works wonders before bedtime.

Hmmm? How is this a good night time drink? Not slamming, just curious. Sounds like a vitametavegamin concoction.

And, where do you find the ingredients for the drink?

In the summertime mostly water. Every once in awhile a glass of wine. If I treat myself and have a bit of dessert I have either a glass of milk or a cup of decaf coffee. In the winter I like to have hot chocolate with or without Bailey's Irish cream and marshmallows, Peets jasmine tea, hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick, or around the holidays eggnog with Captain Morgan's rum topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with nutmeg.

I learned about hot toddys from a book I have on massage. Each has a theme. The Sweet Dreams Massage focues on the hand. And includes a sweet dreams potion (the hot toddy) which is says is hot milk with almond extract, honey and cinnamon sprinkle.
