Veins and all, this carved radish eyeball is a fantastic accent for a classic gin martini. Up the creep factor by leaving the “optic nerve” (or hairy root end) attached.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/4 oz dry vermouth
Eyeball:
  • 1 radish

Method

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.
