What Is A Duck Fart Shot?

Alaskan Duck Fart Shot, as the name suggests, was originally created at a bar called Peanut Farm in Alaska. It was first blended on a slow night when an old woman and the bartender were experimenting with drink recipes.

If it is slammed, just order yourself a duck fart and a beer. At the Peanut Farm, they know how to make them correctly.” – Casey McCutcheon, Assistant Manager at Peanut Farm 

The Duck Fart Shot recipe is a layered shot, traditionally combining Kahlua coffee liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and Crown Royal Canadian whiskey.

The Bailey’s floats on the coffee liqueur, with the Crown Royal Canadian whiskey as the top layer.

  2. Coffee Liqueur: Kahlúa [1] or a similar coffee liqueur is commonly added to provide a rich and sweet flavor. (20% ABV)
  3. Irish Cream: Baileys Irish Cream [2] is a popular choice for this ingredient, contributing a creamy and smooth element to the layered shot. (17% ABV)

Is Duck Fart Shot The Same As B-52 Shot?

No, Duck Fart Shots are different from the B-52 Shot. While the Duck Fart shot and the B-52 shot share fun similarities in terms of layered shots, they’re not the same.

On the other hand, the B-52 drink is made with Kahlúa coffee liqueur, Baileys Irish Cream, and Grand Marnier.
