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

  • Squeeze the lime and put the juice in a small cup.
  • Peel an apple, then using a large metal melon baller, cut out eyeballs.
  • Dip balls into the lime juice to prevent oxidation.
  • 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.
  • Pop a blueberry in the hole then slice off the excess using a sharp knife.
  • Use immediately or freeze for later (make sure they don't touch so they don't freeze together).

Bloody Good Gin and Tonic

  • Pour the blood into the bottom of the glass then fill it with ice.
  • Squeeze a lime wedge into the glass then top with two ounces of gin.
  • Finish with two ounces tonic or more to taste.

  • Garnish with an eyeball. They float, so use a cocktail pick or fork.
  • For extra effect add a small chunk of dry ice to the drink with the ice.

Notes

Make sure to brush up on dry ice safety before your festivities!
