The Kamikaze

The KamikazeThe Kamikaze is a classic cocktail that you can think of as a vodka margarita. It is also similar to the original daiquiri or the more recent Cosmopolitan (or cranberry kamikaze). It contains just a few simple ingredients and when balanced well, it has a refreshing flavor. Good-quality booze and fresh lime juice go a long way with flavor in this cocktail.

The kamikaze dates back to a naval base during WWII, and it was made popular in the 1970s. The sweet-sour flavor is achieved with just three ingredients: vodka, triple sec, and fresh lime juice.
