Veins and all, this carved radish eyeball is a fantastic accent for a classic gin martini. Up the creep factor by leaving the “optic nerve” (or hairy root end) attach Eyeball: Peel radish, leaving root end and a few thin streaks of red skin intact to resemble blood vessels. Using tip of small knife or melon baller, scoop out hole in top of radish; stuff with olive, pimiento side up. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
