The Mad Eye Martini is a quintessential Halloween cocktail with a gruesome eyeball garnish. The drink itself has that beautiful pale blue color, which is the signature of Hpnotiq and the flavor is as pleasant as can be with the lychee accent.

Creating the garnish is rather easy and may take a bit of practice to get the right look, but it's a fun little project to work on and have prepared before the party.
