Duck WHAT?

How about we talk about drinks today? I'm not a beer drinking girl. I like the fruity girly drinks. I know to some that's cool, to others that's just horrible. I hate that I can't enjoy a beer-trust me I'd love to save the money! Those fruity girly drinks add up quick! My husband can have 2 or 3 beers for the cost of ONE drink for me. Good thing I don't drink too often.

I also am a "shot" girl. I love shots. I think I can't stand it when my drinks get warm so I'd rather just down it and feel good quick and not have my drink get warm. The problem with that? Well, it's down quick and then I don't have a drink! Plus you get drunk way faster. It is never my goal to get drunk, I just want to loosen up a bit and have a good time. But it happens sometimes. I tend to be a bit of a control freak and uptight. If I drink I let go a little bit.

Today I'd like to tell you about one of my favorite shots. Every once in awhile a bartender will make it as a drink instead of a shot. Depending on where you go, there's a good chance EVERYONE will look at you and say you want WHAT? It's kind of funny. Anyway, the shot is called a Duck Fart. Yes, a Duck Fart. No I don't know why it has that name. It's easy to make yourself at home, and easy to tell a bartender how to make too.

Bailey's Irish Cream
Crown Royal

Mix equal parts of all 3. Simple as that. (You can substitute Crown for Southern Comfort if you prefer)
It is supposed to be a "stacked" shot, meaning you can see each layer in the shot glass. I personally don't care if it's stacked or not.
My problem with this drink....the after taste is so sweet on my lips that I want more and more and more. It doesn't take many to knock me on my butt though. BE CAREFUL.

I attempted to "stack" the drink. This above picture is sort of shows you how it works. If you look at the below picture, well the shot on the left is how it usually looks when I get it. I don't think I've ever had one "stacked" like it's supposed to be. If you look real close at the shot on the right, you can see 3 layers-barely. So, you shouldn't make single shots. I prefer to do shots with someone. I was making these just for the sake of the blog and no one was here to do them with me. Oh darn, I had to do them both! :) I still say YUM, stacked or not! BUT I hadn't had dinner yet and was waiting on the hubster to bring dinner home-probably should have waited to eat a little before doing BOTH shots! Definitely felt these quick!

If you ever see me post anywhere or say "QUACK" just out of the blue...I could very well be stating I NEED a shot! I'd love to hear from you. What is your favorite drink? How do you make it? Did you try this one? If you did, what did you think of it?
