The Revolver cocktail is a spin on the Manhattan starring bourbon and Tia Maria coffee liqueur. Top it off with a flamed orange twist!
- 2 ounces bourbon whiskey (like Bulleit)
- 1 ounce Tia Maria* (or other coffee liqueur like Kahlua or Sheridan’s)
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- Combine the bourbon, Tia Maria and orange bitters in a mixing glass (or cocktail shaker) with a handful of ice. Stir until cold, then strain into cocktail glass.
- Express the orange peel onto the glass by squeezing it to release the oils. Or if desired, flame the orange peel (taking fire precautions as necessary!): Cut a piece of orange peel in a 2-inch circle. Hold the peel about 2 inches from the cocktail glass and warm it with a lit match. Then, quickly squeeze the peel to express the oils, causing it to flame briefly as the oil hits the glass.
*To convert to ounces, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons. The classic recipe has 1/2 ounce Tia Maria, but we prefer a stronger flavor at 1 ounce.
