The Kamikaze is made of equal parts Vodka, Triple Sec and lime juice. According to the International Bartenders Association, it is served straight up in a cocktail glass. Garnish is typically a wedge or twist of lime.

The result is a lightly sweet, very tart, and subtly funky cocktail. It does not seem very strong, but it very much is.
