Author Notes: Now that our kids are grown, my friends and I, although saddened that, for us, Halloween is no longer kid-centric, all do the adult thing: we make our own Halloween party and drink martinis! I always dress in my (menopause-appropriate) witch costume. I dust off my black hat, put on some scary shoes and a bad attitude, and, bearing a broom as a hostess gift, I go off into the night, to my friend Lynn's. Lynn decorates her house like crazy, and I help her make Wicked Witch Martinis. Here’s how to make 'em: - thecrabbycook

Food52 Review: This wickedly good dirty martini will keep the grown-ups entertained through trick-or-treat hour (and beyond). It has more vermouth than you might expect but goes down smooth and strong, just how we like 'em. - A&MThe Editors

Serves: 2

  • 6 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1 tablespoon olive juice
  • 1 cup cracked ice
  • 2 green stuffed olives
  • 2 eyeballs, preferably fake
  1. Decorate two martini glasses with spiders and cobwebs and place them in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. Combine the vodka, vermouth, olive juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled, about 20 to 30 seconds. Strain the mixture into the chilled glasses, add an olive and an eyeball to each glass, and serve.
