In the world of morning beverages, there are a lot of personal preferences. There are hot drink drinkers and cold drink drinkers: Some people will adamantly order a cold coffee, even in the dead of winter, while others can never give up their hot latte, even as they sweat through an August commute. There are the people who wake up early and throw together a nice smoothie for breakfast, and those who roll out of bed and grab whatever drink is nearby. Some people really need their caffeine boost, others need sustenance.

In the end, it's nice to wake up to the promise of a delicious drink, and that's what the following recipes are all about -- starting the day off on the right sip.
