Drink – The Riffolver

Sometimes a household runs low on important pantry staples.

Like bourbon.

Sometimes, also, members of that household don’t communicate effectively about plans to remedy that situation before they leave the house in the morning; and then this happens:

His and Hers Bulleit bottles. (Cute couple, aren’t they?)

Time for some new burbon cocktails, but where to go for ideas?

Hello, Google – thank you for bein’ a friend.

The Revolver was born at Bourbon and Branch in San Francisco, and it is (of course,) fantastic and totally worth making, The Booze Guru has the recipe here.

Having said that, we all know how Keri likes to completely disregard tinker with recipes.

So with apologies to the creative geniuses at Bourbon and Branch, I present the jacked up Keri version I like to call the “Riffolver” (It’s a riff on the Revolver. Get it? Well I thought it was clever, so there.)

It is bigger than the original (because that is just how we roll around here,) and the orange flavor is a bit stronger.   It is good. Like “being requested every cocktail hour by The Hub” good.

What You Need:

3 oz Bulleit Bourbon (seriously – if this isn’t your go-to bourbon, give it a try. Lovey love love this stuff.)

1 oz Kahlua

1 capful (or tea spoon) Tripple Sec

 

What You Do:

Add the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and shake until cold.
