San Francisco bartender Jon Santer created the Revolver as a caffeinated twist on the Manhattan cocktail in the early 2000s. He first developed the cocktail at Bruno's before taking it to Bourbon & Branch. Santer used orange bitters instead of sweet vermouth to round out the drink's edges, lending subtle brightness to that dark and mysterious cocktail, while the cocktail's depth is enhanced by a little coffee liqueur, and a hint of sweetness is imparted to the drink with a dash.

  1. Add the bourbon, Kahlua, and orange bitters to a mixing glass filled with ice, and stir until well-chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, flame an orange peel over the top of the drink to express its oils, then garnish with the peel(optional).
