Enjoy the classic Memorial Day drink: The duck fart

One of the best Memorial Day memories for me happened on Memorial Day Eve 2006, at Sleep Out Louie’s. Sleep Out’s was our Sunday brunch spot at the time, but brunch tended to last a lot longer there… sometimes we were still there at 9 or 10 PM. That was the case for the Sunday of the long weekend. We were having whipped cream fights and trying a new drink Emma the bartender had heard about, the duck fart.

According to iDrink.com, here’s how you make a duck fart:
1 oz. Coffee Liqueur
1 oz. Irish Cream
1 oz. Rye/Whiskey

Those ingredients may not sound like they’d go together, but it comes out tasting like a glass of chocolate milk. Very, very alcoholic chocolate milk.

Why not enjoy a duck fart this fine Memorial Day, and raise your glass in a toast to the men and women who have served in this country’s military? Inside tip: Coffee drinkers tell me that a duck fart makes an excellent addition to your coffee on a weekend morning.

Unlike Friday and Saturday, I don’t have a lot of photos to recap the day. Yesterday was kind of a FAIL all the way around. I should’ve eaten at the Majestic but didn’t. Plans for a pool party fell apart. I went home about 7 to take a one-hour nap, and woke up to find it had become a 6-hour nap. Then again, it wasn’t a horrible day by any means. Played pool with friends, and lost a best-2-of-3 series when my friend Dennis made an amazing bank shot in the side. Mary Pat modeled her 1970s lime green tube top. Tom Shelton brought me a Pink Pig baseball cap.

As for today, not much going on… the Redbirds have a home game at 1:05 if you feel like watching some baseball. As far as I know the regular Monday night poker game with Poker Jon and Brick is still on. And, of course, it’s Pint Nite at the Flying Saucer, with most drafts only $3. Don’t let the word “Nite” fool you: Pint Nite starts at 11 AM and lasts all day. Got an hour until the Saucer opens, so I think I’ll pop open a PBR left over from the pool party that wasn’t, and get this holiday started right.
