Charlotte’s Web

This next cocktail was inspired by one of my favorite childhood movies.

It has to do with a pig, named Wilbur, that is being raised to be slaughtered, but is helped out by his friend, Charlotte, a spider. She weaves positive messages about the pig with her web in order to convince the farmer to let him live.

Well, in my version, Charlotte is a giant spider that lures Wilbur, with her seductive voice, into her giant web to slaughter and eat him. Enjoy!
