Zombie Eyeballs Martini

 

Zombie Eyeballs Martini
 
Most cocktails really are about the drink.  However, sometimes the focus is more on the name, and then there are times when the cocktail is all about the garnish.  Such is the case with this cocktail, as we roll out a Halloween drink that is all about the pair of Zombie Eyeballs looking at you from the glass.  We'll provide the ingredients for a delicious cocktail, but feel free to drop your "Eyeballs" into your favorite, relatively clear, cocktail.  Happy Halloween, and good luck with your... Zombie Eyeballs Martini.  Cheers!
 
 
Ingredients 
 
2 oz. Vodka
.5 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. 7-Up
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
2 Radishes
2 Olives
 
 
Directions
 
Add the Vodka, Triple Sec, 7-Up, and Cranberry Juice to an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Give it a good stir, and strain into a chilled Martini glass.  For the garnish, take a paring knife and scrape off most of the Radish peel, leaving just enough to give it a veined appearance.  Use a melon baller, and cut a small hole in the stem end of the radish. Insert a half of an Olive, cut side out, into the hole.  If necessary, secure with a toothpick.  This is a Martha Stewart technique, but you can Google other ways to do this as well.  Once done, drop your Eyeballs into your cocktail, and let the fun begin with your... Zombie Eyeballs Martini.  Bottoms up!
