A tart and citrusy vodka shot made with plenty of freshly squeezed grapefruit, triple sec, and your favorite vodka. A twist on an old recipe, the Kamikaze.

Hey all! It’s your mixologist, Patty, back at it again with another bold drink recipe, this one just in time for the New Year celebration. Today we have a variation on an old classic – The Kamikaze. The Kamikaze is a shot that will be around forever. It’s simple and uses typical ingredients often available in anyone’s home bar. Traditionally, it is made with vodka, triple sec and lime juice. Mike has been enjoying kamikazes since the old college days and still enjoys one every now and then.

I love squeezing citrus to make super fresh, bright, potent flavors for cocktails. Look at this gorgeous grapefruit.

So easy to juice! I was on a huge grapefruit kick for a while. I’d typically squeeze a few lemons and limes in with the grapefruit to get an extra bold citrus flavor. So, when asked for a kamikaze I usually would start mixing things up with what I had on hand. Whenever Mike saw me at the juicer, he’d start eyeballing with hope. Ha!

Eventually the grapefruit kamikaze was born. Nice and simple. We’ve been through a number of iterations of various amounts of citrus. This is the mildest of them all, yet still quite bold. It is a crowd pleaser. Many people don’t like to do shots because they are too strong or too harsh. This one is smooth and fresh. I hope you enjoy it.

Mike’s Perspective: Yep, this is one of my favorite drinks when the evening turns to shots. Somehow they always seem to break out at parties. I love the tart flavor – very BOLD! But not crazily so – and they aren’t killer strong like some of the harsher alcohols out there. Looking forward to one of these on New Year’s Eve! Something you can whip together at a moment’s notice, and something unique.
