For all your Oscars drinking needs, here’s the Life on Mars. It comes from New York’s Roxy Hotel, and they created it to pay homage to the Martian, the Best Picture contender starring Matt Damon as a stranded astronaut. It’s got a few tropical ingredients–like rum and pineapple–that you can’t find on the red planet, but we’ll let that slide. Because otherwise, the drink would be composed mostly of volcanic basalt rock.

1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1 tsp American Fruit Sour Cherry Cordial
