INGREDIENT

  • 16 oz. Gin or vodka
  • 1 oz. Vermouth
  • 14 Medium radishes
  • 7 pimento-stuffed olives, halved crosswise

Directions

  1. To make eyeball ice cubes, trim stem and root ends of a radish. Use a paring knife to scrape the red skin from the radish, leaving just enough to give a veiny appearance. With a small melon baller, cut a hole into the radish, about 1/2 inch in diameter. Fit an olive half, cut-side facing out, into hole in the radish. Place radish in ice-cube tray. Repeat with remaining radishes. Fill tray with water, and freeze.
  2. To make cocktail, mix vodka or gin with vermouth. Stir with ice. Divide eyeball ice cubes among four glasses. Strain martini and pour into glasses.
