There is a whole lot of history and memes going behind this Cocktail shot, mostly for its name!
I know, you were chuckling after hearing this name, but that’s that. There is no changing its name and you have to live with it.
After having said this, the drink by itself is actually a beautiful and delicious one that you will never hate. In fact you will love drinking it more for its ingredients and the overall taste it provides.
History has it that the drink originated in Alaska and someone in the bar funnily named this drink as “Duck Fart Shot” and the name stayed. Sometimes people call it Alaskan Duck Fart Shot.
This cocktail shot is a layered shot, meaning ingredients are layered on top of each other. So, it looks visually beautiful. Moreover, this one is a sweet tasting cocktail. So you will definitely love it once you forget its name and actually drink it.
Or, are you interested in making one for yourself? Ok, in that case, I will guide you through the making of a Duck Fart Shot (giggling).
Duck Fart Shot Recipe
- Shot glasses
- ½ oz. (15 ml) Coffee Liqueur
- ½ oz. (15 ml) Irish Cream
- ¼ oz. (7.5 ml) Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey
- Add Coffee Liqueur (1 part) at the base of the Shot glass.
- Add Irish Cream above the Coffee Liqueur base as a layer by carefully using a spoon.
- Similarly add Crown Royal Whiskey on the top of Irish cream as the third layer.
- Serve and Enjoy the drink!
Tips To Make Duck Fart Shot
✅ Several brands contain Coffee Liqueurs, but in my suggestion, Kahlua is the go-to whenever you want to use one.
✅ Irish Creams are usually Bailey’s (Who else?), but you can also choose other good options like Merrys
✅ Use Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey which is the traditional way of making this cocktail. But in case you do not have this, you can use any other good-quality blended whiskey.
✅ You need to carefully layer each drink on top of each other and this is the important thing. Use a bar spoon to add the second and third ingredients on top of the previous ones. So that the ingredient does not directly fall over the previous one and get mixed.
Variations Of Duck Fart Shot
If you are not interested in having this cocktail as a shot, you can also make it as a cocktail on a larger glass. But remember if you layer it and start drinking it, you won’t be able to sip them all at once.
The idea is to drink all of them at once. You can also try mixing them and drinking in a cocktail glass if you want.
As a frozen shot, this is even better. You can try it as well.
You can have a few giggles on its name, but pass it on and taste this brilliant cocktail that will surely make you want more of it next time.
Duck Fart Shot is a perfect dessert drink after your big dinner meals and a perfect shot for a rather casual party.
