How to Make a Kamikaze

The Kamikaze is the ultimate collegiate drink -- at least it used to be, back when college students were considered old enough to drink. Nowadays, it's more like the ultimate college reunion drink.

  • Step 4: Pour in vodka Pour in 1 ounce of vodka.
  • Step 5: Shake Shake the ingredients vigorously until the outside of the shaker is cool and frosty.
