Take the popular Kamikaze cocktail and shrink it down to a shot glass and you have this fun party shooter. 

It has a tart taste and will take you back a bit, but it is certainly not one of the worst shooters you will come across. Actually it is pretty good and it is so simple to make that you can shake up an entire round in no time.

The lime wedge can be used like the lemon served with a tequila shot. The drinker can suck on the wedge after drinking the shot to add even more pucker to the experience.

You may also hear this called a Bullfrog.

Switch out the clear orange liqueur for blue curacao and you have a Blue Kamikaze. Same great flavor, just a different color!
