(meteorobs) Hot drinks on cold nights

Lew>>>Lesson plans include Sky Watch Preparations (you won't want to
forget your hot cocoa!)

I remember reading on either the NAMN or the IMO observing guide that
hot drinks weren't necessarily the best way to stay warm (or awake) on
cold observing nights.
Last year during the Leonids peak, I drank coffee all night long, and
was THOROUGHLY exhausted by daylight.   Since having read the advice in
one or other of the observing guides, I have not had a repeat experience
this year, even though I've logged about 185 hrs this year including a
few all-nighters.  Can anyone else comment, because if it's OK to drink
hot cocoa, I definately want  hot cocoa!
