Eyeballs in Your Drink

It's easy to prepare these eyes and then place them in a bowl of murky water for instant drama. This recipe is "no cook" and easy to prepare.

The eyes are made from radishes and olives so the kids may not take to them and perhaps not even some adults. Even if they don't get eaten they do make a great decoration for the serving table.

Follow the recipe below to kick it up a notch. There is also video demonstration of how to make these as a Halloween party martini drink.


  • 12 Radishes
  • 12 Green Olives with pimiento


  1. First peel the radishes leaving behind some long thin skin fragments to give the look of blood vessels in the eye. The thinner these are peeled the more realistic they will look!
  2. Now using a small knife or the tip of a vegetable peeler, dig out a small area at the top of the radish the size of your olives.
  3. Place your olives firmly into the hole with the pimento side facing upwards.
  4. Yup, you're done wasn't that easy? Now let's eat them. Okay, these are not going to be popular with the kids and frankly most adults, but they are great accents and so easy and fun. Think of this recipe as more of a craft and check out the demonstration below.......

  • 1 tsp paprika

  3. While the machine is running, slowly pour the flour mix into the feed tube and stop as soon as the mixture appears combined. Do not over-process.
  4. Take about 1 teaspoon of the mixture and form it around an olive completely with the exception of leaving the large end with the pimento facing outward. Place on a baking sheet with "eye" (pimento part) looking upward at a slight angle.
  5. Repeat for all of the olives and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
  6. Note: The eyeballs can be frozen by being placed in the freezer uncovered and once frozen, put in a freezer bag making sure to squeeze out all the air, and seal firmly. Bring them to below room temperature before baking they should be cold but not frozen.
  7. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper and bake the eyeballs in a 400 degree F preheated oven for about 15 minutes.
  8. Serve warm! These are great for a make ahead treat. And the kids will love them.

Jeepers Creepers Where Did Ya Get Those PEEPERS! - Where Did Ya Get Those EYES!

Now, I don't care what the weather man says

When the weatherman says it's raining you'll never hear me complaining

I'm certain the sun will shine, I don't care how the weather vane points

When the weather vane points to gloomy, it's gonna be sunny to me, when your eyes look into mine

Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?

Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those eyes?

Gosh all git up, how'd they get so lit up?

Gosh all git up, how'd they get that size?

Golly gee! when you turn those heaters on, woe is me

Got to get my cheaters on

Jeepers Creepers where'd ya get those peepers?

On, those weepers how they hypnotize, where'd ya get those eyes?

Where'd ya get those eyes?

Where'd ya get those eyes?
