First time ever getting drunk, I drank two 20 oz. bottles full of Kamikazes, It didn't hit me until I said, screw shots, how about I just take full mouthfuls from the bottle itself, after the third mouthful.. I'm like, "Hey, I'm drunk.. this is sweettttttt". It hit me like a punch in the face.

By bubbles on May 31st, 2011 at 11:51:47

I thought grapefruit juice was part of this drink mix?

By ron on May 11th, 2011 at 11:00:20

hey guys... how about mixing the kamikazee with out Cointreau, can i use gin instead?

By freedom139 on May 7th, 2011 at 07:27:53

you always have to drink at least five of them. you know why because then your an ace.

By tammy on April 6th, 2011 at 07:23:57

This was the first drink I ever had with my Dad at a bar and I really love it....Wow it can kick your a$$ .....Good times!!!

By Joe on April 5th, 2011 at 00:10:10

I'm a bartender and met a guy tonight who claims he invented the kamikaze in 1978. He then told me has cirrhosis of liver and shouldn't be drinking.

By Earl on April 4th, 2011 at 22:08:22

bunch of WUSSES! nothing better than OLD NUMBER 7... tried them all for many years...

By JesseJames on March 29th, 2011 at 15:35:14

That is a good kamikaze, but if you really want to have fun try a Serbian kamikaze.

1/2 Tequila
1/4 Gin
1/4 Vodka

Pure tequila first, half glass
pure gin second, one quarter glass
vodka is last.

Take a lighter, and flame the drink, keep drink flamed for 15 sec. or until it is hot. take a straw, and drink it fast, catch the flame with a straw at the end.

Bada-bing-bada-boom Yur wasted!

By Kim on March 24th, 2011 at 17:04:00

One of my fave drinks enjoyed as either shots or sipped. Either way, they'll knock you on your rear if you're not careful. "Let's sink another drink!" as Billy Idol used to sing!

By Jdawg on February 4th, 2011 at 21:46:58

Drinkin with Lincoln. Kami's until the special was over. I found myself in another state. Louisiana(start)Florida(finished).WHAT A NIGHT.

By Whats Good Cory on January 21st, 2011 at 21:46:03

Just had two for the first time tonight. Must say it was amazing

By Lex Luthor on January 1st, 2011 at 11:46:25

I love kamikazes! I have found that they taste better with gin. I also use 1/2oz roses lime.

By Ben on December 30th, 2010 at 20:15:59

Walked into a bar in Huntsville Ala. and ordered 4 kamii shots with bud chaser. Repeated the order 4 more times. Next thing I knew I was waking up the next day in the barracks.

By Jason on December 2nd, 2010 at 06:06:29

there is bar downtown that is known for these drinks, hell they have a giant mirror behind the bar with all the flavors they do, i swear they must have 50+, every single one ive tried has been awesome and will easily f**k u up!

By Evy on November 9th, 2010 at 02:29:39

im gay and on a date with a girl...drinking this had me making out with some strange guy on the pool table while my date watched with her jaw on the floor

By Mike on November 5th, 2010 at 15:30:55

When I make these, I use 1 oz. Grey Goose, 1 oz. Cointreau, and a few drops of freshly squeezed Lime Juice. *licks lips* they are delicious

By Tracy on October 29th, 2010 at 16:24:15

Kamikaze's are delish! I think I should have a few tonight.

By margarita on August 5th, 2010 at 15:17:33

By jason on August 1st, 2010 at 06:43:23

kamikaze's are the best.

By heath on April 4th, 2010 at 12:02:51

kamikazi is the party drink for bars...no doubt!

By coni on March 20th, 2010 at 06:26:14

for parties we greet everyone with a kamikaze shot - we do 2 parts vodka, 2 parts sweet n sour mix, 1 part triple sec - this time tried raspberry vodka for one of the vodka parts - nice!

By pitboy666 on March 17th, 2010 at 00:45:18

New Wave Lounge....Ft. Liquordale, Fla. Pitchers of these bad boys, two blonde german tourists who only know one word of English. Yes! I passed out, my friend Steve hooked up with both of them. Damn you Kamikaze. Still, the best pitcher drink ever invented.

By anonymous on February 24th, 2010 at 13:56:54

they dont make it better anywhere else but mexico!

By Sven on February 19th, 2010 at 11:56:35

Get one of those construction water coolers, a 750ml of Grey Goose, 750 of Triple Sec, and a bottle of Roses lime juice. Leave the vodka and triple sec in the freezer over night, and when you're ready to party combine the three in the water cooler and your bar-tending job is done.

By ryan on February 13th, 2010 at 15:48:22

Kamikaze's got me so faded one time i stole an airplane and crashed it on purpose. WWWWHHHOOOOAAAA!!!!!

By Frank Purchiaroni on January 13th, 2010 at 12:41:28

Kamikaze is my favorite drink, but I make it slightly different because I don't like the overpowering lime taste. Also I use Rosie's Lime Juice, which is clear, not cloudy like real lime juice, and it's not as sour. Try 1oz vodka, 1oz triple sec, 1/2 oz Rosie's Lime Juice over crushed ice, stirred, not shaken. It comes out a clear pale green. Try it and let me know.

By RYAN THE MAN on December 31st, 2009 at 15:21:19


By Efrain on December 18th, 2009 at 20:38:43

This is definitely my favorite drink! I'm having a get together tomorrow and I'll be serving nothing but kamikazes. First time making them so I started testing right now. I had 3 and I'm already buzzing. They taste so dam good!!!!

By kimberly on December 12th, 2009 at 07:06:37

really messes you upp because they taste so good. after 24 shots you black out.

By Olga Dastuvia on December 11th, 2009 at 23:41:48

Dolla you make a no sense. How can you have better, but it still be the best drink ever??? I confused. In my country we make a more sense.

By JCCruiser on November 20th, 2009 at 20:53:16

Ended a Thurs.night, at Yorkshire House, drinking Kamikase shooters...a contest with a really cute guy!! I guess I lost, cause the front door bouncer had the unfortunate task of holding my braids out of the way, while I vomited into the gutter!(Yucck) Not my finest hour!! Didn't return to Yorkshire for a few weeks! NEVER,, ever had a drinking contest with Kamikase's again...But, they are sooooooo gooooood!! Especially on a hot summer night!
That was 1974...!!!!!!!

By SuperBlender on October 21st, 2009 at 17:34:41

By karl on August 9th, 2009 at 06:07:15

After bowling we used to get these by the pitcher... ended up divorced and re-married to my current wife who also drank with us... add a shot of gin for some extra punch.

By nikole on July 22nd, 2009 at 21:01:27

I love these drinks!

By Old 8th Street Tempe on July 10th, 2009 at 23:07:20

Back in the day - when Reagan was prez - Legendary Kamikaze Party - 5 parts vodka 1 part Rose's Lime 1 part triple sec - using a beer mug to measure & mixxing in a bottled water dispenser. 1st wave of guests were the afternoon partiers, then came the afterdark wave & finally the closing time folks from the bar. We all survived & lived to tell the tale - though a drum set was destroyed - and 2 friends ended up married. This is the first time I thought of that party this century! Kamikaze = Hell of a good drink.

By nick on June 27th, 2009 at 20:46:58

this is always a party favorite!

By Liz on June 13th, 2009 at 10:24:40

Used to enjoy these in the barber's chair back in the good old days. Don't remember much.

By jake on June 7th, 2009 at 07:02:39

Great drink!!

By Dave on May 18th, 2009 at 14:04:47

Used to be able to get this by the pitcher. Dangerously fun times.

By Sutra on May 14th, 2009 at 12:37:53

I sometimes throw in a drop or two of sour mix. It adds a little something extra.
The great thing about these drinks is they are creepers. Taste soooo good and get you wasted =]

By EveGR on May 3rd, 2009 at 16:25:25

instead of lime use fresh lemon juice...its unique if u like sour drinks

By Freddie on March 12th, 2009 at 17:52:36

drinking sux, get something better to do"

And you're visiting a drinking site?

By Charlie on March 10th, 2009 at 19:54:58

these are really good as a shot with southern comfort instead of vodka.

By Malee on March 9th, 2009 at 11:39:24

I skip the lime juice and use lime flavored vodtka

By louann on February 10th, 2009 at 18:36:52

i make it with cherry vodka drink it as a shot its delish.

By vince on February 9th, 2009 at 19:46:57

Skip the shot and have it as a drink..2 of em and you're feelin' good... bomb buzz!

By DavisBenStyle on February 8th, 2009 at 19:18:28

I just got wasted off them and its a rough recovery but more than worth it. I recommend this as a drink or a shot!

By karl on January 31st, 2009 at 10:58:50

Try it "upside down"; get the hottest hottie in the house to pour the mix in your mouth. Shake and swallow. Repeat. Now you've got a party.

By jessica on January 27th, 2009 at 21:13:23

I have only had one my whole life but it is the best. I plan on making some for my one year anniversary :)Wish me luck lol!!

By BIL on January 24th, 2009 at 00:45:44


By McLovin on January 16th, 2009 at 16:58:49

Start off the night with about 4 or 5 of these badboys and you're set....

By Dara on January 5th, 2009 at 07:28:14

I enjoy kamikazes as shots and they are really good but drink them in moderation. I have had one too many crazy nights with kamikazes in the mix!! :)

By peter peter on January 2nd, 2009 at 18:30:34

7 for me + 7 for her = dangerous drive home and ridicuous carnal rampage. Good times. But know your limit. Mine is less than 7.

By Risto on December 31st, 2008 at 08:58:32

I add blue curacao and it's the best :D

By Eric on December 5th, 2008 at 08:27:09

Had my 21st birthday yesterday, went out to a bar, my buddy got me a Kamikaze. "What's this?" I ask. Obviously I don't remember what he told me. Oh yeah, and it was the first thing to come back up this morning. But yeah, they do taste damn good.

By vnd on November 26th, 2008 at 07:28:25

nice shot of vodka

By Dede on November 18th, 2008 at 18:29:46

i abosolutely love this as a shot, skip the garnish, rub the lime around the rim and dip the glass in some sugar or salt, depending on your tastebuds!! yummm

By stacy on November 17th, 2008 at 07:45:36

drinking sux, get something better to do

By shan't on November 8th, 2008 at 15:43:42


By Tim on October 31st, 2008 at 13:48:22

Pretty damn good with blueberry vodka (I recommend either Stoli or Three Olives)

By desieagle on October 15th, 2008 at 13:57:46

By Phyter on August 30th, 2008 at 16:48:40

I drink these as shots (0.5 oz of each ingredient) and it is the BEST SHOT EVER CONCEIVED!
