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?

The Green-Eyed Monster

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
