Ingredients

  1. 14 medium radishes
  2. 7 pimiento-stuffed olives, halved crosswise
  3. 16 ounces gin or vodka
  4. 1 ounce vermouth

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Mix vodka or gin with vermouth; stir with ice. Divide eyeball ice cubes among four glasses. Strain martini; pour into glasses, and serve.

Makes 4 drinks.

Pepper stuffed olives aren't bad actually. Yum that is a really creative idea, I probably would not have it, but still creative.
