Halloween Blood Orange Martini is a fun and colorful ‘bloody’ drink to serve for Halloween along with a mocktail option.  Spiders are getting into everything around here and even making webs right in the drinks! It might be time to exterminate.

Are you ready to drink blood this Halloween? This cocktail can also be made into a mocktail so no one is left without a drink in their hand. To make the drink a little more spooky, I painted a spider web onto the inside of the glass using black gel frosting that can found in any grocery store in the baking section.

Halloween blood orange martini. Lemon vodka, fresh blood orange juice, triple sec. A perfectly spooky Halloween cocktail with a mocktail option.

I recommend freezing the glasses after adding the web and before pouring in the liquid. This helps set the spider web and also keeps the drink chilled. The spiders are just plastic props that can be found all over this time of year. I glued black sewing thread to him, then glued the other end of the thread to the rim of the glass.

A spooky spider sip where it’s best to keep the spirits in the glass.

If you like this spooky martini, I have more Halloween cocktails and mocktails  like  Halloween Scorpion Venom Punch.
