Eyeball Highballs!

How much do you love the look of this "Eyeball Highball"? While I wish I had come up with this idea myself, all the credit goes to Martha Stewart, the queen of crafty coolness. Here's the recipe:


14 medium radishes
7 pimiento-stuffed olives, halved crosswise
16 ounces gin or vodka
1 ounce vermouth

Trim stem and root ends of radish. Use a paring knife to scrape red skin from radish, leaving just enough to give a veiny appearance. With a small melon baller, cut a hole in radish, about 1/2 inch in diameter. Fit an olive half, cut-side facing out, into hole. Place radish in ice-cube tray. Repeat with remaining radishes. Fill tray with water; freeze.

Mix vodka or gin with vermouth; stir with ice. Divide eyeball ice cubes among four glasses. Strain martini; pour into glasses, and serve.



  1. He he, those are adorable! I love how funny the glasses look - and how edible the ice is when it fully melts. For once, you won't be upset about your ice cubes melting in your drink!
