As soon as winter rolls around, we develop an inexplicable desire to make everything a cozier version of itself. This even applies to our favorite cocktails, like the Negroni. Bartender Naren Young of recently re-vamped N.Y.C. Italian eatery Dante has done just that by putting a piquant chocolate spin on the classic Italian cocktail, declaring the beverage the magnum opus of his career. The “Chocolate Spice” is sure to bring a hot-cocoa-in-the-snow vibe to your next holiday gathering. Check out the recipe below.

¾ oz Cinzano Rosso ($13;

¼ oz gin

¼ oz White Crème de Cacao ($13;

3 dashes chocolate bitters
