  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

  • 3 eyeball ice cubes
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces Bloody Mary mix

  • 1 jar stuffed green olives
  • 1 jar black olives
    For The Bloody Mary Mix (Per Drink)

    You can, of course, use a commercial Bloody Mary mix.

  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon horseradish or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 dashes hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • Black pepper and celery salt to taste

    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.
