Kamikaze Drink

Updated on March 21, 2008

What Is a Kamikaze Drink?

A Kamikaze drink is one of the most popular cocktail drinks. What makes a Kamikaze drink even better is that a Kamikaze recipe is very simple and easy to make. The Kamikaze drink recipe was created in Japan and was named after the legendary Kamikaze pilots of World War II.

Kamikaze drinks are vodka cocktail drinks. Kamikaze drinks also contain triple sec, which is an orange flavored liqueur. Some recommended brands of triple sec are Bols and DeKuyper. A suitable substitute if triple sec isn't available is Curacao. Try a Kamikaze drink with the authentic recommended ingredients before you judge if you enjoy Kamikaze drinks, though.

Kamikaze Drink Ingredients

Kamikaze Drink Recipe

Here is a Kamikaze drink recipe that is simple and delicious. Serve your Kamikaze drink over ice in an old-fashioned glass.

Add equal parts vodka, lime juice, and triple sec to a cocktail shaker that is filled at least halfway with ice. Shake your Kamikaze drink vigorously for at least 20 seconds to be sure that the drink ingredients are chilled well. If you don't own a cocktail shaker, just pour all of the ingredients into a large glass or pitcher that can be covered tightly and use it to shake up your Kamikaze drink recipe.

Strain the Kamikaze drink into an old-fashioned glass. The traditional garnish for a Kamikaze recipe is a slice of lime. A maraschino cherry can be used for a garnish, if desired.

Kamikaze Drink Recipe Variation

A variation on the Kamikaze drink recipe is to substitute lemon juice for lime juice. Then garnish the Kamikaze drink with a lemon slice instead of a slice of lime.

      I use to drink these, don't know why I stopped. Only thing missing from instructions is to chill everything and drink it while it is ice cold, it does make a big difference to the taste. Only a couple, cuz it could cause you to crash on the deck.
