  • 2018 Oscar Cocktails: Sunken Place, Inspired by “Get Out”
  • “Get Out" Film Poster

Chris agrees to be hypnotized by his girlfriend’s mother to cure his smoking addiction but instead, sinks into the “sunken place” where after an operation to transplant the mind of a white man into his body, Chris would remain in the void watching powerlessly.  The Sunken Place cocktail, inspired by Get Out, looks innocuous on the surface but has a dark underside trapped beneath.


2 oz. rum

1 oz. coconut rum

2 oz. pineapple juice

1 oz. cream of coconut


½ oz. blue curacao

½ oz. grenadine

Tools & Materials

12 oz. Mikasa Cheers Martini Glass


  • Combine rums, pineapple juice and cream of coconut in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into chilled martini glass.

  • Combine the blue curacao and grenadine and slowly drizzle down the side of the glass. It will settle at the bottom and create a beautiful “black and white” layered look.
