‘eyeballs’ in your 'ighballs

What's a monster's favorite cocktail? An 'ighball.

I want to make these .

How to make a Bloody Eyeball Martini

per eyeball:
1 radish
1 pimiento stuffed green olive

per drink:
1 shot gin or vodka
1/4 shot dry vermouth (more or less to taste)

Prepare ice "eyeballs" at least a day before your plan to use them.

Peel radishes, leaving thin streaks of red skin on to represent blood vessels (see pictures below).

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

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

To make drink, fill a tall cocktail glass with 3-4 eyeball ice cubes, add ingredients in the order given. Shake or stir, as is your preference.
