Eyeball: Peel radish, leaving root end and a few thin streaks of red skin intact to resemble blood vessels. Using tip of small knife or melon baller, scoop out hole in top of radish; stuff with olive, pimiento side up. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin and vermouth; shake vigorously to blend and chill. Strain into martini glass; garnish with eyeball.
