Kamikaze Shot Recipe

There are many ways to get a vodka shot in a bar but a kamikaze shooter is one of the most popular. You can use it at parties since it’s made from vodka, triple sec, and lime juice. It’s a little sweet with a kick of tartness, and it’s a blast to drink. The kamikaze is a tasty little drink you can make very easily at home, and you can shake it up in no time. It is said that it was developed in Japan after World War II, perhaps on a U.S. military plane. The base is a naval one. It is no coincidence that during the 1970s and 1980s, vodka became the drink of choice for numerous Americans, and the shot became a staple of American culture. This remains one of the most popular bars to this day. Also, there are some fun colors and unexpected flavors you can add to it. The shot even inspired the kamikaze cocktail, which is essentially the same thing but in a cocktail glass. If you like, a lime wedge can be added to complete the look. You can add even more pucker to the experience by biting into the wedge after drinking.
