Though it was created more than five years after the Revolver, Franky Marshall’s Mr. Brown, a combination of bourbon, Coffee Heering, vanilla syrup and bitters follows a parallel trajectory and reads like a Revolver on the rocks.

- 3/4 ounce coffee liqueur, preferably Coffee Heering
- 1 bar spoon vanilla syrup (see Editor's Note)
- 1 dash orange bitters
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
