The Revolver is a cocktail recipe designed by the mixologists at San Francisco’s Bourbon & Branch, a speakeasy kind of a joint.
You’ll note the ingredients and think that I’ve gone MAD for even suggesting that you make this cocktail. But trust me, it works.
Now, what goes into a revolver? Bullets! So what goes into The Revolver? Bulleit Bourbon! Don’t substitute any bourbon in this recipe if at all possible. But if you must sub in, please use Buffalo Trace.
