Cranberry Kamikaze Shot or Cocktail Recipe

I’m reviving my “kamikaze queen” status with these cranberry kamikaze shots, a fun take on a classic shot or cocktail. They’re perfect for New Year’s Eve!

It was my dad on the other end of the line. “Is this a good time to chat, or are you in the middle of dinner?” he asked. “Oh no, Steve and I are just doing cranberry kamikaze shots,” I said.

You see, these are not words that typically come out of my mouth. We’re getting older…we don’t bounce back from this sort of behavior as well as we did in our college days. But taste-testing was necessary. We were taking one for the blog.

In fact, I decided it was my time to revive my “Kamikaze Queen” status, if just for five minutes. It’s been years since I mixed martini shakers-full of
kamikaze shots for my restaurant co-workers, unbeknownst to the owner of the restaurant.

But even though I rarely indulge now, kamikazes are still one of my favorite cocktails and shots.

While I am a sucker for the classic combination of lime, vodka and triple sec, I thought it would be fun to mix things up for New Year’s Eve. Instead of sweetening the cocktail with a traditional simple syrup, I added a splash of cranberry juice. If you prefer a touch more sweetness, feel free to add some simple syrup. (See my original kamikaze recipe for the proportions.)

The legendary Cosmopolitan is a simple cocktail with a big history. It reached its height of popularity in the 1990s, when the HBO show “Sex and the City” was at its peak. The pink-hued, Martini-style drink was a favorite of the characters on the show. It made its debut during the second season and became a series regular after that.

For a good decade, the Cosmopolitan may have been the most popular cocktail in America, and bartenders couldn’t work a shift without making dozens of them for thirsty patrons. Naturally, its ubiquity spurred countless riffs, from the White Cosmo (St-Germain in place of Cointreau) to versions featuring gin. While the drink isn’t as popular today as it was in its heyday, the classic recipe is still very much alive.

According to bartending legend and author Gary Regan, the original Cosmopolitan was created in 1985 by Miami bartender Cheryl Cook while working at a South Beach bar called the Strand. Eager to invent a new cocktail for the Martini glass, Cook riffed on the classic Kamikaze by using a newly introduced citrus-flavored vodka, plus a splash of cranberry juice.

There’s some debate about who created the original Cosmopolitan. Many believe, like Regan, that it was first mixed by Cook. Others believe that Dale DeGroff concocted it at New York City’s Rainbow Room, or that Toby Cecchini first devised a Cosmo in 1988 during his tenure at New York’s Odeon. However, all agree that Cecchini popularized the vodka-and-cranberry ’Tini. His version of the drink called for 2 ounces of Absolut Citron vodka, an ounce of Cointreau, an ounce of Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail and an ounce of fresh lime juice, with a lemon twist.

The Cosmo was a product of its time. In the late-1980s and early-’90s, vodka was king, but flavored vodka was just finding an audience. When Absolut released its first flavored vodka, the lemony Citron, bartenders had a new toy to work with. Cecchini used it in the Cosmo alongside Ocean Spray, and the vodka-and-cranberry duo is still the preferred pair at most bars today. You, of course, can use whichever citrus-flavored vodka and cranberry juice you like. Just remember: Don’t drown your drink in cranberry. Other cocktails like the Sea Breeze call for a heavier measure of cranberry, but here the juice is meant to be only an accent, adding a touch of tartness and color.

Health Benefits Of Cranberry

In addition to being a super versatile fruit, cranberry has countless health benefits that are sure to make you include it in your diet. Cranberries are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients apart from fibre, all of which are great for our all-round wellness. Let's look at the many health benefits of cranberry:

1. Packed With Antioxidants: Cranberries are known to have the maximum amount of disease-fighting antioxidants as compared to all other fruits and vegetables that includes strawberries, spinach, broccoli or even cherries.

2. Aids Weight Loss: According to Delhi-based Nutritionist Anshul Jaibharat, "Cranberry is loaded with fibre, which helps in staying full for long. Besides that, cranberry juice has an emulsifying effect on the fats deposited in the body, which can help with weight loss."

3. May Help Prevent UTIs: Perhaps the only fruit best known for its role in preventing UTI, cranberry has a high level of proanthocyanidins that help in lowering the adhesion of certain bacteria to the urinary-tract walls and fighting the infections.

4. Healthy Heart: Cranberries have polyphenols that may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing blood pressure and preventing platelet build-up.

Besides consuming cranberry juice, there are multiple other ways to load up on this healthy fruit. Thanks to its versatility, cranberries can be used to prepare multiple delicious dishes at home. Let's look at the five best cranberry recipes to prepare at home.

Kamikaze Cocktail Variations

If you look at the kamikaze, you'll see it is very similar to both the daiquiri (which has rum) and the margarita (with tequila). Just by varying the type of alcohol and garnish, you can create other classic cocktails. You can also alter the basic kamikaze recipe with mixers to make more delicious kamikaze drink variations.

Cranberry Kamikaze

Cranberries turn this kamikaze cocktail a nice pink shade. They also add complexity to the sweet-tart flavors of the original that creates a martini similar to the cosmopolitan but with different proportions of mixers.


  • ½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ ounce cranberry juice
  • ¾ ounce triple sec
  • 1½ ounces vodka
  • Ice
  • Lime twist for garnish


  1. Chill a martini glass
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the lime juice, cranberry juice, triple sec, and vodka.
  3. Add ice and shake.
  4. Strain into the chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lime.

Blue Kamikaze

Blue curaçao, which is a vivid blue-colored orange-flavored liqueur, replaces the triple sec. The flavor is similar to the original kamikaze drink, but the color certainly isn't.


  • ¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¾ ounce blue curaçao
  • 1½ ounces vodka
  • Ice
  • Lime wheel for garnish


  1. Chill a martini glass.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the lime juice, blue curaçao, and vodka.
  3. Add ice and shake.
  4. Strain into the chilled martini glass.
  5. Garnish with the lime wheel.

Raspberry Kamikaze Cocktail

Flavored vodkas bring all sorts of interesting possibilities to the basic kamikaze drink. While raspberry vodka is used here, feel free to try it with other flavored vodkas as well.


1½ ounces raspberry-flavored vodka

Fresh raspberries and a lemon twist for garnish


  1. Chill a cocktail glass.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the lime juice, triple sec, and vodka.
  3. Add the ice and shake.
  4. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with raspberries and a lemon twist.

Kamikaze Mocktail

You can still enjoy the flavors of a kamikaze in an alcohol-free version of the kamikaze cocktail.


  • 1 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Ice
  • 1 ounce lemon lime soda
  • Cherry for garnish


  1. Chill a rocks glass.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the orange juice, lime juice, and bitters.
  3. Add ice and shake.
  4. Strain into the chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Add the lemon-lime soda and stir.
  5. Garnish with the cherry.

Kamikaze Cocktail History

The kamikaze cocktail was first created during World War II in a bar of an American naval base that occupied Japan. It took until the 1970s to hear about this drink recipe, when it became popular during the golden years of vodka. It was first served as a shot and then bartenders turned it into a Martini-like cocktail.

For this sweet-sour drink was chosen the Japanese name of kamikaze which means "divine wind". Although earlier translations seemed to refer to the Mongol invasions of Japan in the 13th century or even Japanese military jargon, it is currently believed that this name was chosen for a simple reference to the cocktail's origins and strong sweet-sour flavors.


Step 1

Combine vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.

Step 2

Strain cocktail through a Hawthorne strainer or a slotted spoon into a martini glass. Garnish with orange twist.

How would you rate Cosmopolitan?

This is a worthless drink. I rate 2/5 however your system would only allow a bogus 5 star!. Tastes like the 5 cent popcicle of yesteryear.

55 Genius Ways to Make Cranberries Part of Any Fall Meal

This versatile berry is good for so much more than just sauce.

For some people, the best part of Thanksgiving dinner isn't the turkey or the pie, it's the little red pile of irresistibly zippy berries that sit on the side of the plate. If you're one of those cranberry lovers, we're here for you. And Thanksgiving is only the beginning. The way we see it, cranberries simply have it all. They're slightly sweet, tart, and just as delicious in side dishes as they are in decadent desserts. This fall, give yourself (and your family) the gift of a bevy of cranberry dishes, from salads to pies, sauces to sandwiches. These juicy little berries add a burst of fresh fall flavor to just about anything from wild rice pilaf to no-bake cheesecakes and streusel-topped banana bread.

They're also equally welcome in both sweet and savory dishes, so whether you need a quick, easy menu idea for your next holiday dinner or something seriously impressive and beautiful to add to your Thanksgiving dessert table, we've got you covered. Of course, when it comes to the best cranberry recipes out there, it's all about balancing flavors and sweetness levels to find that "just right" mix&mdashyou don't want any one ingredient to overpower the others. Here, we've made sure to include recipes that perfectly complement the tangy cranberry taste (warm winter spices and freshly squeezed orange juice for the win!). Take a peek at some of our most-loved recipes, then grab your ingredients and get cooking!

For this recipe, choose a high-quality blanco or silver tequila for the best cranberry margarita. The bottle should say 100% agave, but that doesn’t mean it has to break the bank. Here are a few tequilas I recommend.

To make this cranberry margarita look beautiful and festive, I rimmed the glass with sea salt and garnished it with fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary.

It makes the whole thing feel like a fun winter wonderland and I can’t help but have a huge smile on my face when I’m holding one!

For this recipe, I used a cocktail shaker. I have one that I purchased at my local Target, but I’ve actually been meaning to replace it. It drips down the side when I’m shaking and pouring my drink and it can just get a little messy. I’ve been eyeing this one from OXO Good Grips in particular. It’s inexpensive, has a nonslip grip which is KEY and looks well-constructed.

But if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can still make this. Just use a large glass and mix the ingredients with a spoon. It’s not as fancy, but it does the job.

The Most Popular Cocktail Recipe in Every State Right Now, According to Google

What are you drinking in Arkansas? Who’s sipping what in South Dakota or Washington? We know that Americans are buying more alcohol than normal while they’re stuck at home — presumably at least in part because they can’t stop by the bar on their way home for a little happy hour — but what are people actually making with all that alcohol they’re buying? Google did some digging and just released their list of the drinks that people in each state uniquely searched for in the last three weeks — meaning that they search for that drink more than anywhere else in the U.S.

So, what kinds of things are people mixing for themselves? A lot of Old Fashioneds, mostly. Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Virginia, and Washington State all searched for the drink. It’s simplicity definitely helps in making it a good quarantine cocktail — you just need whiskey, sugar, and bitters.

Perhaps in the most obvious of choices, New York searched most for the Manhattan (another simple cocktail — which again needs just whiskey and bitters, this time with the addition of vermouth). But it was also the drink of choice for Illinois and New Jersey. Kamikazes (triple sec, vodka, and lime juice) were popular, too, topping the list with five states. And three states were craving Cosmos (the same as a Kamikazes, plus cranberry). Palomas (grapefruit juice and tequila) showed up all along the Mexico border — California, Arizona, Texas.

But forget simplicity: Alabama and Colorado need to know how to make Hurricanes, which requires multiple kinds of juice and rum, among other things (passion fruit!), Mississippi is searching for a Painkiller, and Montana for a Blue Hawaiian

The most interesting searches, though, are always the one-offs: Why does Minnesota love the Oliveto (triple sec, gin, simple syrup, and egg white) so much? Why is Arkansas the only place looking for frozen Daiquiris? We can guess Florida’s reasoning behind the Cuba Libre, but what about Indiana’s passion for the French 75? That seems like it should have been Louisiana, which instead (along with Tennessee and North Carolina) went with the Bushwacker. And is there a reason that only Ohio is searching for my own favorite cocktail, the Boulevardier?
