Getaway Car

Getaway Car cocktail with aged rum, Ancho Reyes, pineapple juice, lime juice, and simple syrup

The Getaway Car, from Meaghan Dorman at The Raines Law Room in New York City, is one of our favorite ways to introduce folks to Ancho Reyes, a smoky ancho chili liqueur.

Dorman calls for Appleton Reserve, but it’s lovely with any aged rum you like. It really shines with fresh pineapple juice, but we’ve made plenty with the canned stuff and we enjoyed every glass.

The original recipe calls for plain old simple syrup, but if you have pineapple syrup it will be fantastic in the Getaway Car. Similarly, a pineapple rum like Plantation’s Stiggins’ Pineapple adds another layer of complexity.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
