A cocktail named after the Japanese kamikaze suicide pilots of World War II. The name probably comes from the drink's usual effect on its drinker, caused by a high but well-masked alcohol content, coupled with a tendency to drink them as shooters.

Ingredients

Shake with ice. Strain into glass.

The exact proportions are a matter of debate. The amount of vodka is often increased or even replaced with Everclear (95% distilled alcohol).

A variant of the drink is blended with ice and a measure of Blue Curaçao, producing a gentler, fluorescent cocktail drunk with a straw.
