everyone knows that a person of refinement drinks Nestle's Chocolate Milk when having dinner.
My mom always served milk for dinner for good bones and teeth, and I have never wavered. It's ingrained. On hot summer nights she's serve iced tea, and I still have that choice as well.

Happily, my mother-in-law was the exact same in my wife's family so that was easy.

Or, as the suits in Washington call it, "fat-free milk".
A cocktail like a gin and tonic or a vodka tonic in summer (especially after mowing the lawn).
All year long. Decaffeineated so I don't stay awake all night.
Living down south, that's pretty much a standard.
The second choice is a home made fermented malt beverage.
Aged several weeks with barley, hops, and yeast.
