Ingredients
1 oz Brandy
1 oz Blood Orange Puree
2 oz GranGala Triple Orange Liqueur
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1-12 oz Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Orange Truffle or Chocolate-Dipped Orange Slice
1 Plastic Spider (optional)

Directions
Using 8 to 10 chocolate chips for one drink, heat in the microwave for 20 seconds until almost melted. Take chips out of the microwave and stir with a spoon until completely melted (this method creates best chocolate consistency for making the web).

Place the melted chocolate in a squeeze bottle and ‘draw’ a spider web on the inside of the martini glass.

In a Boston shaker, add the rest of the ingredients and shake well. Pour into the decorated martini glass. Garnish with an orange truffle or chocolate dipped orange slice. Add a plastic spider to the drink as an optional garnish!

Tips from the Mixologist: You can create the chocolate web ahead of time, then leave the glasses in a cool place so the chocolate solidifies.

Mansi’s Tip: Use a toothpick dipped in chocolate to draw the web on the glass instead of a cone; it’s much easier!

Spook out your guests with this Creepy Crawler Halloween Cocktail and watch them scream, faint or get all grossed out when they see a spider floating in their Martini!! hey! its Halloween, what do you expect!!:)
