Arm yourself with this bourbon and coffee liqueur cocktail. Introduced by San Francisco bartender Jon Santer in the early 2000s, the Revolver is locked and loaded with the spicy bite of rye-heavy Bulleit Bourbon and a slug of coffee liqueur. Orange bitters lend subtle brightness to that dark and mysterious duo. Go ahead and pull the trigger.
I love it! Especially the part where in the beginning the aroma is better and richer than the taste itself. And all these oranges continue to persist throughout the coffee and the sweet bourbon. This one can easily serve as a definition for the term 'cocktail'. Cheers!
This is a tasty cocktail, but can be a bit syrupy if not mixed well. Another one that I've tried that's close to this is halving the vermouth in a manhattan or tequila manhattan (mexico city?) and replacing the other half with coffee liquor (Firelit if you can find it) and then garnishing with a brandied cherry. It turns out pretty rich, but is a fun spin on the classic manhattan.
