Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Great for a party — If you are hosting a bunch of people, these raspberry kamikaze shots are a perfect way to welcome guests.
- Easy — It takes only a few minutes to whip up a large batch of these shots, so you can serve your friends with a huge shots platter.
- Not too strong — Chambord adds a fruity raspberry flavor that sweetens these shots so they are much more enjoyable than straight vodka shots.
Ingredients & Substitutions
- Chambord: Chambord is a raspberry flavored liqueur. You should be able to find Chambord in your local alcohol store. If not, you can use another type of raspberry liqueur, or you can substitute the Chambord with this homemade raspberry simple syrup.
- Vodka: Use your favorite mid-shelf brand of vodka, or whatever you have on hand. If you don’t like vodka, you can replace it with white rum or tequila.
- Triple Sec: Triple sec is an orange flavored liqueur. You can substitute this with another orange liqueur such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
- Lime Juice: If you have the time, freshly squeezed lime juice will give these shots the best taste. However, if you are making a bunch for a group, it is much faster to use bottled lime juice instead.
How To Make Raspberry Kamikaze Shots
Step 1: Add the Chambord, vodka, triple sec and lime juice to a cocktail shaker.
Step 2: Shake well and strain, dividing into 2 to 3 shot glasses.
- Add some muddled raspberries. The Chambord will add in raspberry flavor, but for a brighter, fresher raspberry taste, muddle some fresh raspberries in the bottom of the cocktail shaker before preparing the shots.
- Serve them with blue kamikaze shots. These red raspberry kamikaze shots pair perfectly with these blue kamikaze shots. Serve a mix of both on a platter for a variety of options for guests.
- Add some garnish. A single fresh raspberry works well as a garnish for this cocktail. You can also place a thin slice of lime on top of each shot glass as well.
- Make a raspberry kamikaze drink. This raspberry kamikaze shot can be converted into a cocktail. Double or triple the recipe quantity and serve in a chilled martini glass. Note that this will make a strong cocktail. To make the drink less strong, replace the Chambord with this raspberry simple syrup. Optionally, add in a splash of cranberry juice or orange juice.
It depends on the size of the shot glasses you use. This recipe makes 3 ounces. Therefore, it will make three 1 oz shots or two 1 ½ oz shots. Adjust the quantity as needed.
To save time, you can make these kamikaze shots a couple hours in advance before your guests arrive and store them in the fridge on a large platter. Don’t make them too far in advance, otherwise they may separate slightly.
