Dark chocolate goes perfect with wine
Little Black Dress

Thinkstock

There is a reason a square of dark chocolate goes so nicely with a glass of red wine. The flavors are meant for each other, so when you combine them to create hot cocoa, its heaven in a cup. This cocktail has hints of cherry, clove, and soft floral notes that bring the flavors of bittersweet chocolate to life.
