Day 62

3 shots out of 5

When I started this blog I told my friends to let me know what cocktail they want me to make on their birthdays.  

Tonight is Kristin's birthday and she has requested I make a Kamikaze.  

A big Happy Birthday to you Kristin!

I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5.  

The Kamikaze is pretty good, but I think next time I make it I will put in less lime juice.  

I put in equal amounts of the 3 main ingredients and it was a bit too limey.  

So then I added in the simple syrup, which helped........but I think if I would have halved the lime juice and still added the simply syrup, I would have liked it better.  

My husband says that he likes his with lemon juice instead of lime juice..........so that's always an option next time.

 Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is the recipe for a Kamikaze:

  • 1 shot vodka
  • 1 shot Cointreau 
  • 1 shot lime juice
  • 1/4 shot simple syrup

In a shaker add ice, vodka, Cointreau, lime juice and simple syrup.  Shake it up really well to get it all mixed and chilled good.  Strain into a short cocktail glass.

A huge Happy Birthday to Kristin!  We send hugs and kisses your way on your BIG day!!
