Ingredients

Eyeballs

  • 1-2 large tart apples (suc as Granny Smith)
  • a handful of small blueberries
  • juice of one lime

Gin and Tonic (per cocktail)

  • 1/2 ounce edible fake blood (cherry syrup)
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 2 ounces tonic water
  • lime wedges

Instructions

Bloody Eyeballs

  1. Squeeze the lime and put the juice in a small cup.

  2. Peel an apple, then using a large metal melon baller, cut out eyeballs.

  3. Dip balls into the lime juice to prevent oxidation.

  4. Using a small sharp object, cut out a circle the size of blueberry. I used a metal pour spout, but a large holed piping tip would also work.

  5. Pop a blueberry in the hole then slice off the excess using a sharp knife.

  6. Use immediately or freeze for later (make sure they don't touch so they don't freeze together).

Bloody Good Gin and Tonic

  1. Pour the blood into the bottom of the glass then fill it with ice.

  2. Squeeze a lime wedge into the glass then top with two ounces of gin.

  3. Finish with two ounces tonic or more to taste.

  4. Garnish with an eyeball. They float, so use a cocktail pick or fork.

  5. For extra effect add a small chunk of dry ice to the drink with the ice.
