I had it for the first time over at a friends house, I had heard of them but hadn’t actually drank one yet…
So a Duck Fart is a layered shot with Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream and whiskey. The Kahlua is the bottom layer, the Bailey’s floats on top of the Kahlua for the middle layer and then a good amount of whiskey gets poured on top of the Bailey’s.
Traditionally the whiskey used in a Duck Fart Shot is Crown Royal, but feel free to grab whatever whiskey you have on hand.
So why is it called a Duck Fart? Good question –
They say that the Duck Fart is to Alaska what the Mai Tai is to Hawaii, or the margarita is to Mexico.
It’s said to have originated in a bar in Alaska on a slow night when the bartender and an older woman were experimenting with shots. The older woman drank a few here and a few there and finally came up with the layered shot we know today as the Duck Fart. Still doesn’t explain the name but in the story it said something about how the woman had a very unique way of…well…burping.
But I promise you, the Duck Fart Shot is way more tasty than that vision I just gave you – you’ll be making this for all your friends.
Start by pouring some Kahlua into the bottom of your shot glass. Then slowly add in a layer of the Bailey’s, you can pour it over the back of a spoon to get it to easily layer for you. Then pour in the whiskey – best to do the spoon method for this layer too so you don’t screw up the first two layers you just did.
And finally, there’s no sipping this shot! Make sure your friends drink the whole shot at once.
I know all of you shot sippers out there…don’t do it.
You’ll get the whiskey all by itself and then you won’t taste how the flavors mix together. And when they mix together, it’s good.
Believe me, these Duck Fart Shots taste so much better than the name sounds!
