The Duck Fart is a layered shot that is quite a delicious mixed drink despite it's funny name. The cocktail originated in Alaska where it is quite popular.
Duck Fart Drink
The Duck Fart is said to have been originally created at a bar called the Peanut Farm, in Anchorage, Alaska. This is why the drink also goes by the name, Alaskan Duck Fart. As far as alcoholic shot names go, you have to admit it is memorable.
The cocktail is usually served as a layered shot. Kahlua coffee liqueur makes the base layer, then Bailey's or another Irish Cream. The final layer is typically a blended whiskey, such as Crown Royal or Canadian Whiskey (as I used here). Some swap the whiskey for Grand Marnier, but that is actually a B-52 shot not a Duck Fart.
How to Make Duck Fart Shots
Now let's make the layered cocktail. Printable recipe card to stash at your bar is below.
What goes in a Duck Fart Shot?
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz Baileys Irish Cream (I used Merrys, which is quite good for the price)
- 1 oz blended Whiskey (such as Crown Royal or Canadian Club)
You will also need a bar spoon to help with layering the drink in the shot glass.
You will also need a larger 3 oz shot glass, as standard ones are just 2 oz.
Making the Shot
Speed pour nozzles will make this easier. I don't have them on the bottles in my home bar. I did see some recently that automatically cover the nozzle. I'll be trying them soon and will update if they are worth the spend.
First pour in the Kahlua. You can use a 1 ounce shot measure if you like. I just eye balled it.
Next, position your bar spoon in the glass just above the Kahlua and slowly pour in Baileys.
Finally, again position the spoon at just above the liquor level and pour in the whiskey. This layer will likely not be as distinct as the first.
Not in the mood for a shot? This cocktail can be easily served on the rocks or even turned into a frozen drink.
