By  October 21, 2009

Having friends over for a pre-Halloween celebration? Get into the spooky spirit with a delightfully devilish cocktail. Try this sinful sipper and have a wicked-fun time.

Bloody Orange Web

Created by Leo Ramirez, Mixologist, Trina Lounge; makes 1

2 oz Imported GranGala Triple Orange Liqueur®
1 oz Brandy such as Stock 84 VSOP
1 oz Blood Orange Puree*
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1 bag dark chocolate chips
1 orange truffle or chocolate-dipped orange slice
1 plastic spider, optional

Heat about 1 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave for 20 seconds until almost melted. Stir with a spoon until completely melted (this method creates best chocolate consistency for making the web).  Transfer to a squeeze bottle and “draw’:a spider web on the inside of each martini glass (glass can be prepared in advance).  To make one drink, add the rest of the ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well.  Pour into the decorated martini glass, garnish with an orange truffle or chocolate dipped orange slice and spider, and serve.
