What is a Blue Kamikaze Shot

Blue Kamikaze is a boozy shot that uses lime, vodka, and blue curacao. This is a strong shot that is sweet, tangy, and has a punch of sourness. You will find that depending on the recipe, it might call for a triple sec or other types of alcohol. You can also rim the shot glass with sugar and lime juice.

Blue Kamikaze Ingredients List

Bottles of Vodka, Blue Curacao, and Lime Juice, with a Lime.
  • Vodka – Use quality vodka. Any brand works and you can even try flavored vodka if you want to enhance the flavor of this vodka shot recipe.
  • Blue Curacao – This is where the bright blue color of this shot comes from. It is going to add sweetness but also a bright blue color. If you use Triple Sec in replacement, add a couple of drops of blue food coloring if you want a blue shot.
  • Lime Juice – The lime juice and lime wedges add a nice punch of tang and sourness, as well as help balance the sweetness. I do recommend fresh lime juice and not bottled.

Top Tips from our Recipe Developer

  • Dip the rim of the shot glass in lime juice and then roll in sugar for a sweet component as you take the shot.
  • Feel free to use Triple Sec in replace of Blue Curacao. Just add food coloring if you want a blue shot.
  • You can adjust the amount of alcohol used and lime juice. Create the potency of your preference.
  • If you want a stronger shot to add 6 ounces of vodka instead of 4. Then use 2 ounces of blue curacao as well, so it is a lot stronger of a shot.
  • You can make as many shots as you want. This recipe makes 4 shots which average around 8 ounces in total.
  • Mix and serve right away so you have a chilled shot that is perfectly flavored.

Storing Tips


These shots can be refrigerated in covered shot glasses. Or you can place the shots in a baking dish and cover them with plastic wrap. The shots will last around 24 hours in the fridge. I do recommend serving fresh for the best flavor.

What to serve with these shots

If you are hosting a party, consider some of these easy appetizers to have on hand for when your guests get a snack attack. This fresh pineapple salsa is great for dipping with salty tortilla chips. Or whip up this spicy buffalo chicken dip that is made in the slow cooker.

Depending on the alcohol proof of your vodka is going to affect how strong the shots are. Overall these are pretty powerful, so drink in moderation. Also, you can make it less or more by altering the amount of vodka used.
