Ingredients for Bloody Eyeball Martini
2 oz gin or vodka
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1 olive eyeball


1. Place gin and vermouth in a cocktail shaker with ice.
2. Gently shake and pour, straining the ice, into a martini glass
3. Garnish with an olive eyeball

Prepare ice "eyeballs"

per eyeball:
1 radish
1 pimiento stuffed green olive

The "eyeballs" should be prepared a day before your plan on use them.

Step 1: Peel radishes, leaving thin streaks of red skin on to represent blood vessels.

Step 2: Using the tip of the vegetable peeler or a small, knife, carefully scoop out a small hole in each radish, roughly the size of an olive.

Step 3: Stuff a green olive, pimiento side out, in each hole.

Step 4: Place 1 radish eyeball in each section of an empty ice cube tray. Pare the radishes down a bit to fit, if necessary. Fill the tray with water and freeze overnight.
