Ingredients for a Raspberry Kamikaze
- Vodka – The best vodka for vodka shots is Tito’s Vodka.
- Chambord – For this pink Kamikaze Shot we use Chambord Raspberry Liqueur. It is a black raspberry liqueur. This gives the shot its raspberry flavor and its stunning pink color.
- Triple Sec – We also tried this with Cointreau and Grand Marnier. See “Variations” below for more details on which one we liked best.
- Fresh Raspberries – Not only can you use these as a garnish but they go in the cocktail shaker. When shaken the raspberry gets muddled and releases its flavor and juices.
- Fresh Lime Wedges – Part of the fun with this vodka shot recipe is squeezing the lime over the top right before shooting the vodka shot!
One of the standout features of Raspberry Kamikaze Shots is the unique flavor blend. Combining the tartness of lime juice with the sweetness of raspberry liqueur and the smoothness of vodka creates a perfectly balanced Pink Vodka Shot that is both refreshing and satisfying.
The fruity flavor of the raspberry liqueur adds a delicious twist to the classic Kamikaze recipe, elevating it to a whole new level. Plus, the bright pink color added by the Chambord is a fun and festive touch to any party spread. Serve up these tasty vodka shots and watch as your guests come back for more!

There are so many variations of the Kamikaze. Whether it is upgrading to a cocktail or experimenting with different liqueurs this classic vodka shot base is always a win.
- The OG Kamikaze Shot, this Classic Vodka Shot Recipe is made with Vodka, Triple Sec, and Lime.
- The Blue Kamikaze is made the same as the classic but the Triple Sec is swapped out for Blue Curacao.
We tested Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, and Cointreau for this Kamikaze Shot recipe, and here is what we found:
- Triple Sec – Standard liqueur used in all Kamikaze shots. Unbeatable price.
- Cointreau – Definitely sweeter than the Grand Marnier. It has a more candy flavor.
- Grand Marnier – Makes the color of the shot richer and in terms of taste, it was the winner. If you are converting the Raspberry Kamikaze into a cocktail. I recommend swapping out the Triple Sec for Grand Marnier.
