VeganMoFo: Eyeball Martini


This creepy martini stares back at you with edible eyeballs! A great garnish for Halloween drinks, or pile the eyeballs on a plate for snacking. I can't take credit for the idea, which is all over the internet.

You'll need radishes and small green olives. To prepare an eyeball, slice one end off a radish. Retain the root for an "optic nerve" effect. Peel the red skin to give the appearance of bloodshot veins. Hollow out a little bit of the center, and stuff a small olive in. You might need to trim the end off the olive to help it fit.

Make your 'tini (I like the Quite Dry Martini), and garnish with eyeballs. Here's looking at you!

By the way, for plenty more vegan spookiness, check out River's blog, Wing-It Vegan. She has so many creative recipes with great photos for "Halloweegan." Not to mention that she's another St. Louis area vegan blogger. Watch out St. Louis, we're growing in number!
