I thought about how I could make a sort of "whiskey martini" using the old coffee my old bar saved every night. As I experimented, the leftover coffee became a coffee liqueur. The vanilla notes from the KOVAL, orange and herbal notes from Aperol, and nuts, chocolate, and dark cherries of Lazzaroni all get tied together by the Mr. Black. Perfect for after dinner or as a dessert cocktail.

The name is because I love Blazing Saddles, the most similar cocktail I could find was a "Revolver", and Gene Wilder drinks an entire bottle of whiskey about 15 minutes in, so it felt right.



 1.75 oz Bourbon Whiskey(KOVAL)
 0.50 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.50 oz Amaretto(Lazzaroni)
 0.50 oz Aperol



Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice.


Stir for 20-25 seconds, and pour into chilled martini glass.


Garnish with expressed orange swath and enjoy!
