A Quick F-Word is a layered shooter made from one part coffee liqueur like Kahlua, one part cold Midori liqueur and one part Baileys Irish Cream. The Baileys is poured off the back of a bar spoon so it “floats” on top of the Kahlua in a shot glass. Then slowly layer the Midori on top of the Baileys. Note that Baileys does not have to be used; any type of Irish Cream will do.
There are special machines that can prepare a Quick F-Word (or other multi-layered cocktails) in only a few seconds, but an experienced bartender usually relies on the traditional, handmade preparation. Cocktails with horizontal layering, like the Quick F-Word, are called “P-Word Café“. This method of preparation is called “building,” as opposed to blending or shaking; thus, Quick F-Words are “built.”
The Quick F-Word is a well known layered shot containing Cream and Melon. We’ve taken the best South Island cream and combined it with sweet and tasty Melon to produce another classic.
