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.


  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz Coffee liqueur
  • 2 dashes Orange bitters
  • Garnish: Flamed orange peel


  1. Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice, and stir until chilled.

  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a wide strip of orange peel.
