Supper, derived from the French word souper, is nowadays a word that to many is interchangeable with dinner to mean an evening meal.
To some however, supper is an entirely different meal of the day. Eaten between dinner and bedtime, supper usually consists of a warm milky drink and a snack such as biscuits, toast and jam or cereal. For some, supper is also an occasion to enjoy a little nightcap. Traditionally whiskey was the tipple of choice, but Baileys and brandy are now equally as popular.
A chance to relax before bedtime, supper is favoured by those who enjoy a little something before settling down for the night. How wonderfully British.
