Radish eyeballs Trim both ends of a radish. Scoop a hole in one end and insert a small, stuffed green olive. It'll look like a "bloodshoot eyeball." Freeze these in ice cubes. "They are great for scary cocktails," says Colleen Brangan of Pompano Beach. We tried it: The tool you use to core zucchini or eggplants, which is available at Middle Eastern grocery stores, works great for coring the radish. Use tiny manzanilla olives that fit perfectly into the hole. The longer the radish freezes in the ice cube, the more red and "bloodshot" it looks. You can leave some of the radish sticking out of the ice cube. It looks particularly bloodshot and scary.
