Look for radishes that are fairly uniform in size,
so they will fit nicely into your ice-cube tray.
Halloween 2000, Fall 2000
- 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.
