    This is a pre-game favorite in Poland. Its not uncommon to see the locals take down a min five shots per person all in a row in about 10 seconds. It’s fun to see all those shot glasses lined up on the bar if there is a big party. Surprised? Dont be, just try it. No chaser is necessary because the lemon juice and triple sec provide a fine accompaniment. What a symphony this makes when u get to 12 in a row. That’s when you’ll start to appreciate the name :-)

    Remember, although I would only use fresh lime in mine
    the Kamikaze’s origins are from the Roses Lime Juice company
    They developed the recipe for promotion of their product
