Lychee eyes with blueberry pupils are suspended in a vodka gelée shot. Unlike classic college Jell-O shots soft enough to slurp, these are firm enough to pick up. Feeling that slick jiggly texture while staring into an eye you’re about to eat? It’ll definitely freak you out ... in the best possible way.
This makes enough cocktail mix for 24 mini muffin cups, but a can of lychees comes with 16 to 18 pieces of fruit. You can either open another can to make more eyeballs or fill the cups with just the liquid. If you do the latter, you can slurp them as shots or use them to decorate the platter as indicated below. A shot of cranberry juice, pomegranate juice or blood orange juice will tint them a plasma-blood color.
