KamikazeYes, we’re posting from again.  We can’t help it, they have good info that our readers will love too.  This week they discuss the Kamikaze, a drink that many think of as an ‘amateur’ drink meant to be slammed like a shot.  Goodness knows, it was once my favorite shot and never did I think it could be an actual classy drink.  But now, now that they write this and I think about yummy those shots actually were, I find myself asking, “why not?  why can’t this delicious cocktail be exactly that – a classy cocktail?”  The ingredients don’t scream ghetto, or amateur, so why has the Kamikaze turned into ‘that’ drink?

Here is how to make a Kamikaze and you can see by the ingredients and the pretty picture from The Spirit that it would, in fact, be a wonderful and refreshing Signature Cocktail for your wedding – perhaps you’d like to name it a special name personalized to the two of you just so your guests drink it in a more sipping and refined manner rather than trying to slam it like a shot;)


The Kamikaze


1 1/2 oz Vodka
2 teaspoons Cointreau
1/2 oz Lime juice
Lime wedge (for garnish)


In a ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, Cointreau, and lime juice. Shake vigorously. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass, garnish with a lime wedge.

Legend has it that the Kamikaze was first poured on an American Naval base in Japan in the late 1940s, and that the name (not unlike the Zombie) is meant to give you an idea of its effect.  Click here to keep reading the entire story from The Spirit
