What’s in the Duck Shot

Bottles of Kahlua, Bailey’s, and Jack Daniels.

Kahula – This is a coffee liqueur that is going to give it a rich coffee flavor. You will find that it has a hint of bitterness to the shot.

Bailey’s – This Irish cream is so easy to make, or you can buy it at the store. It is a sweet and creamy texture that is the center of the shot. It offers a really sweet flavor to balance out the ingredients.

Whiskey – Now you can use any type of Whiskey. I used Jack Daniels, but any works. It is going to give your shot that nice tangy kick. It will balance out all the other ingredients.

Tips from our Recipe Developer

  • Using the back of the spoon to slowly pour in the layers of liquid is going to help create a layered look. If you pour it right into the shot glass, it will mix.
  • Work with chilled ingredients. This is going to help give even better flavor to your shot.
  • You can use plastic or glass shot glasses. I recommend using a clear glass so you can see the layers.
  • Make sure you pour each ingredient in as it is directed. You don’t want to pour in different layers as it won’t layer properly.
  • If you want a stronger shot feel free to adjust the amount of whiskey you use. Feel free to play around with the amounts of each ingredient.
  • Add a layer of Ameretto after the Bailey’s for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Instead of whiskey use a Smoky scotch to call it a smoky duck shot.
  • Use a spiced whiskey or cinnamon whiskey for a spicy duck shot.
  • Use a chocolate liqueur instead of Kahlua for a chocolate-flavored duck shot.

Storing Tips

You will not want to make and store your shots assembled. It will break apart if you store it layered. I recommend storing each of the liquids in its own container in the fridge. Then it takes just a minute or two to assemble when you get a craving for it.

Duck Fart Shot takes minutes to make and is bursting with creamy flavors. Kahula, Bailey's and whiskey join forces in this layered Duck Shot.



  • ½ Ounce (14 ⅙ g) Kahlua
  • ½ Ounce (14 ⅙ g) Bailey’s

Chocolate Liqueur- You can use a chocolate liqueur instead of Kahlua.

Make sure your ingredients are fully chilled to help elevate the flavors of the duck shot.
