The Bloody Mary becomes a Mutant Mary with eyeball ice cubes (photo courtesy Elegant Affairs Caterers).
Counting down to Halloween, we received this cocktail recipe from Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs Caterers.
Just add eyeball ice cubes to a Bloody Mary in a rocks glass (photo #1).
To make the optics more Halloween-y, Andrea replaces the red pimento centers in stuffed olives (photo #2) with black olives. But if you prefer the look of the red, you can save yourself the step.
You can also take pitted black olives and add red pimento pupils—perhaps even spookier!
NOTE: A traditional rocks/Old Fashioned glass holds 6–8 ounces total, whereas a highball/Collins glass can hold 12–14 ounces.
Ingredients Per Drink/Rocks Glass
You can, of course, use a commercial Bloody Mary mix.
1. FREEZE ice cubes in a tray. While the ice freezes, remove the green olives from the jar and replace the red pimento pieces with black olive slices. When the cubes are slushy, insert the eyeball, with the pupil face up.
2. MAKE the Bloody Mary mix; add the vodka and chill.
3. ASSEMBLE: Place the ice cubes in the glass, top with Bloody Mary mix and serve.
