While the name isn’t the most appetizing, the shot is quite delicious. The creamy, rich layers of three different liquors, each with different densities, make this shot highly requested. The layered presentation and flavor of this trifecta are sure to impress your guests.

Duck Fart Shot Recipe

The Duck Fart Shot is composed of equal parts of three ingredients:

  • Kahlua. A coffee-flavored liqueur.
  • Bailey’s. An Irish cream liqueur flavored with cocoa and Irish whiskey. It also stars in the Baileys Martini.
  • Whiskey. See below on what whiskey we recommend for a Duck Fart Shot.

What kind of whiskey is best?

Crown Royal or Knobb Creek are the best whiskeys for Duck Fart, but any whiskey will do. The key is to find something that you enjoy the flavor of.

What’s the difference between a B 52 and a Duck Fart?

Both a B-52 and Duck Fart are layered shots made with Kahlua and Bailey’s. The difference lies in the third liquor: a B-52 contains Grand Marnier (orange flavored liqueur) while a Duck Fart uses whiskey.

Why is it called a Duck Fart Shot

The Duck Fart Shot, also known as the Alaskan Duck Fart Shot, was created in Alaska and is said to have had its unique name ever since. While the story of why exactly is up for debate, we can all agree that it’s memorable.

Are Bailey’s and Kahlua the same

Nope! They are two different liqueurs. Bailey’s is an Irish cream made with Irish whiskey, making it more creamy with notes of chocolate. Kahlua is a coffee-flavored liqueur made with coffee beans and rum.

Does Kahlua have caffeine

Yes, though very little. A shot of Kahlua will have less than 10mg of caffeine compared to an 8 oz brewed coffee that can have close to 200 mg.
