The Revolver

2 ounces bourbon (a rye-heavy bourbon such as Bulleit, Buffalo Trace or Basil Hayden is recommended)
1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
2 dashes orange bitters
Garnish: wide strip of orange zest
Procedures

1
Combine bourbon, coffee liqueur, and orange bitters in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

2
Twist orange peel to express oils over drink and use as garnish (or, for a better floor show and a deeper flavor, flame the orange twist and then use the twist as garnish.)
