It sounds like you're looking for a cocktail with the rich, robust combination of coffee and bourbon! One standout option is the highly rated Revolver. This cocktail, praised by Jeffrey Morgenthaler in his book, brings together the deep flavors of bourbon and coffee liqueur with a dash of orange bitters and a touch of sugar syrup. Each ingredient melds beautifully, creating a drink that's both sophisticated and invigorating. The Revolver is stirred, not shaken, and served in a classic cocktail glass, ensuring a refined and smooth experience that's hard to match. With an impressive rating of 4.8/5, it's definitely a top choice for coffee and bourbon enthusiasts.

Another interesting cocktail you might want to try is the Scudder, which pays homage to Lawrence Block's Matt Scudder. This concoction is a straightforward mix of bourbon and coffee liqueur, stirred and served cold in a cocktail glass. Its simplicity lets the robust flavors of both the bourbon and coffee liqueur shine through, making it an excellent option if you prefer a drink that's easy to prepare yet full of character. It has a respectable rating of 3.91/5, indicating that many find this to be an enjoyable drink.

Both of these cocktails offer a delightful combination of coffee and bourbon, with the Revolver being more complex and highly rated, while the Scudder provides a no-fuss, flavorful experience. Cheers!
