From: Maureen Petrosky

INGREDIENTS

• 2 ounces Charbay blood orange vodka
• Juice of 1 whole (blood) orange (or 1.5 ounce fresh blood orange juice)
• 1 ounce simple syrup

red food coloring. Drizzle around edge of martini glass to look drippy and oozy.

Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice; shake and strain into an oozy-rimmed martini glass, garnish with a skewer of Halloween candy — see eyeball ideas below.



Eyeball martini

From: Maureen Petrosky

INGREDIENTS

• 2 1/2 ounces vodka
• 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
• 2 radishes, hollowed out to hold an olive, peeled or carved with a paring knife to look like veins
• 2 pimento-stuffed green olives

DIRECTIONS

Peel and hollow out radishes so they can hold an olive. Then drop them into a Crystal Head Vodka martini, which also doubles as a centerpiece.

If you want more radishes and olives to show lots of eyeballs, it's easy to display these in an ice cube tray — you can also freeze this garnish into ice cubes to use in drinks on the rocks.

TIPS

Use a paring knife to peel or carve the radishes. It will help add the appearance of veins.
