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)
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!
