Halloween Chic: The Green-Eyed Monster Martini

At Halloween, I don’t mind finding an eyeball in my martini—as long as it’s made from lychee and blueberries. I actually find them quite delicious. Serve this cocktail up alongside an apothecary glass of extra eyeballs for a great mad scientist effect. And is it any surprise that the Green-Eyed Monster comes out when I’m strutting around in my Bad Sandy costume?
