The Blue Kamikaze shot is made with vodka and Blue Curacao with fresh lime juice squeezed over the top. Blue Curacao gives this Blue Kamikaze Shot its gorgeous sapphire color.
Taking shots is a fast way to get your buzz on. What makes shots so popular (other than a quick way to get drunk) is that they take on an art form. Creating a small, delicious, and visually stunning drink in a 1.5 oz shot is magic.
I think we can all agree we have taken some pretty horrible shots in the past. Some made you gag or even made your eyes water. There is no fun in that for you.
Maybe your friends watching you thought it was hilarious! It is time to move on from proving your manhood to your friends.
Shots should be enjoyed and fun (for everyone).
First, you are going to need shot glasses. Here is the shot glass set I used for this photoshoot. They are multicolored. I used the blue shot glass out of the set for these photos.
Ingredients for a Blue Kamikaze Shot
We highly recommend fresh ripe fruit when making cocktails/shots. Juicing fresh fruit just tastes better. However, store-bought pressed lime juice works just as well especially if you are making big batches.
How to Make a Blue Kamikaze Shot
- First, fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Add the vodka and Blue Curacao.
- Shake until chilled.
- Strain into a shot glass.
- Squeeze a fresh wedge of lime over the top of the shot.
- Make this shot into a cocktail. Double ingredients and pour over ice.
- Shoot it like a tequila shot. Instead of adding the lime juice, shoot it and then bite into the lime.
- Made it and didn’t like it? Understandable it is pretty stiff. Add a splash of simple syrup.
- Try using flavored vodkas for extra flavor.
- Double or Triple recipe in the cocktail shaker to make multiple shots rather than one at a time. Pour evenly into shot glasses.
