Kamikaze Cocktail Info
The Kamikaze was invented on an American naval base, in Japan, after World War II. This is the kind of cocktail bartenders make for fun-seeking customers and patrons. It's actually not a cocktail; it's more of a shot.
The mixture of vodka, lime juice, and orange liqueur can be served as an ice-cold shot or cocktail glass. It is usually consumed in much less time than it takes for the ingredients to assemble. This does not mean you should go at it blindly. Mixing a great shooter requires removing all the unnecessary parts and concentrating on its bold, bracing characteristics.
The Kamikaze is a guilty pleasure among bartenders and drinkers, but good ingredients make it a respected drink. The recipe calls for two ounces (60ml) of vodka; the vodka is then mixed with orange liqueur and fresh lime juice. This contrasts with many other recipes that call for Rose's lime cordial or sour mix. Neither of these ingredients delivers the same citrusy flavor that gives the Kamikaze its backbone. This drink is one for fans of the Lemon Drop.
Make sure you shake the liquid with ice for a minimum of 10 seconds because you need water in this drink. Double-strain it to get rid of any ice shards if you want. You'll end up with enough liquid for two shots or one extensive cocktail.
