Duck Fart

I’m posting this because it’s a funny, funky shot tied to a place I used to live: Anchorage, Alaska. If I ever had this, it was only once, but I know it’s something that we always laughed at on menus, while trying to get friends to order. has posted the recipe for a Duck Fart, a quirky Alaskan pousse cafe.

Duck Fart

1 ounce Kahlúa
1 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 ounce Crown Royal Whisky

Pour Kahlúa into a 3-ounce shot glass. Using the convex side of a bar spoon, slowly pour Baileys over the Kahlúa, making sure not to disturb it, to create a layered effect. Using the same technique, layer the Crown Royal over the Baileys.

An Alaskan original created more than 20 years ago at the Peanut Farm in Anchorage, this layered cocktail is said to be named for the sound you’ll make after drinking one.

I never knew that the Duck Fart originated at the Peanut Farm, a big Anchorage sports bar I’ve been to a few times. It’s common on Alaskan bar menus in Anchorage and beyond. It’s also something you should be able to get in just about any bar in the Lower 48. Enjoy!
