What Is in a Kamikaze Shot?

A Kamikaze shot is made with 1.5 ounces of vodka, 0.75 ounce of triple sec and 0.75 ounce of lime juice. It is served in a cocktail glass and typically garnished with a lime wedge. The drink first appeared in the 1970s, and many variations exist.

To prepare the Kamikaze shot, add all the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake and then strain the mixture into a cold cocktail glass. It can be taken as a shot or drank as a cocktail. For a variation on the traditional recipe, substitute triple sec for blue curaçao or add raspberry liquor.
