Mara’s Cocktail Recipe from Spontaneous the Movie

Mara’s Cocktail Recipe from Spontaneous the Movie

Looking for a new movie to watch? Spontaneous is an explosive coming of age story, quite literally, that follows the untraditional senior year of Mara and Dylan, who form an unlikely bond and romance after students in their class start exploding unexpectedly.

Yes, really.

In the movie Spontaneous, Mara makes a signature drink which she so fittingly calls, All My Friends Are Dead.

Sip Mara’s cocktail (or my mocktail) while you watch Spontaneous if you want your movie night to be extra explosive.

Mara’s Signature Cocktail in Spontaneous (aka the All My Friends are Dead Drink)

First, let’s make the same drink that Mara makes in the movie Spontaneous.

Cocktail Ingredients:

  • 3 parts vodka (~3 oz.)
  • 1 part dry vermouth (~1 oz.)
  • Grenadine
  • Ice
  • Serving glass

In a cocktail shaker or glass, add 3 parts vodka, 1 part dry vermouth, and ice. Stir, then pour into a serving glass. Top with grenadine (basically the whole bottle, according to Mara). Enjoy.

Let’s just say that Mara’s drink is stronger than I typically enjoy, but this mocktail is a new favorite.

Mocktail Ingredients:

  • 2 parts cranberry juice (~2 oz.)
  • 2 parts ginger ale (~2 oz.)
  • Grenadine
  • Ice
  • Serving glass

In a cocktail shaker or glass, add 2 parts cranberry juice, 2 parts ginger ale, and ice. Stir, then pour into a serving glass. Add a splash of grenadine. Enjoy.

Spontaneous is now available to stream on digital.
