How can I boost my metabolism at night?

Keep your metabolism motor running all night long with a Spicy Red Icey. Combine a spicy red wine, like a Rioja or Malbec, with ice chips and a bit of mint. The wine not only helps you relax, but also has the added benefit of boosting metabolism for up to 95 minutes after you enjoy it. And while wine snobs may not approve, adding ice chips to your red wine forces your body to burn calories, as it has to use its own energy to warm the liquid to body temperature. The mint will add an interesting kick, and its scent has been shown to stave off those late-night hunger cravings.
