Nerf gun (Revolver variation) Christmas Baking with SusieJ

Measurements [metric]

  • 1 1/2 fl oz bourbon
  • 1/2 fl oz cold, strong coffee
  • 1/2 fl oz almond liqueur , e.g. Amaretto
  • 2 dashes orange bitters

Shake the bourbon, coffee, and almond liqueur over ice until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and add two dashes of orange bitters.

Winter means bourbon and whiskey cocktails like the revolver, a bourbon-coffee liqueur-orange bitters cocktail found in Robert Simonson's Three-Ingredient Cocktails. Having cold coffee but no coffee liqueur, this interpretation with classic proportions was very tasty. The name refers back to the inspiration, in a more pacifist way.
