Are you ready for the spooky season?

During the process of creating this recipe

Ingredients for an apple martini

This cocktail is pretty simple. All you need is:

  • Martini
  • Apple Cider
  • Lychee
  • Blueberries

How to make this apple martini cocktail

Make the lychee eyes:

material you need:

  • Red food color
  • Toothpick

First choose 2 nice looking lychees from your can. A good exemplar would be a lychee that is basically completely in tact and has no big rips on the sides from removing the pit. Next choose a blueberry that fits into the chosen lychees.

Depending on how big they are you will need a bigger or smaller blueberry. Sometimes you even have to insert 2 berries. You will want to make sure that the blueberry is slightly coming out of the lychee fruit. Alright our eye is nearly ready but not spooky enough yet.

The eyes are still missing their spooky factor the blood! Get your toothpick and food color out. You can use your toothpick just like a brush to paint on the lychee eye. Put some food color on one side and simply slide in between the little cracks the fruit already has. Then you can add more red lines where there are no cracks if you want more.

Set the eyes aside and continue making your drink.

Make the apple martini:

Add some ice to your cocktail shaker.

Pour the Vodka, Martini, apple cider and tonic water into your cocktail shaker.

As we do not use any citrus fruit in this recipe we will only stir the mixture With a cocktail spoon or a normal long spoon gently stir.

Using a sieve pour the drink into your martini glas.

Decorate your drink with your lychee eyes by sticking them on a cocktail pick and placing them on the rim of your glas.

Cheers!

Bloody Eye Apple Martini

Make it bloodier:

When you drop the eyes into your drink instead of putting them on the glas your drink will turn red and make it look like fresh bloody eyes just got dropped into them to preserve the eyes. This gives it an extra creepy factor and will be perfect to serve to your guests at Halloween party.

You can see in the picture above that the drink in the top right corner has a red hue to it. That is because I dropped the lychees into the drink first. The longer the eyes are in the cocktail the more food color will dissolve into the cocktail and come off the eyes. I recommend letting the color dry first and throwing them in right before serving.

The drink will of course get more lychee flavor when you have them in your cocktail.

Make it a mocktail

Do you not drink alcohol or have kids and still want to serve those creepy eyes?

Don’t you worry! You can simply omit the alcohol in this recipe and only mix tonic water and apple cider. Decorate it with your spooky, bloody lychee eyes et voilà you have a hair-raising Halloween mocktail.
