Since starting this tailgating blog back in 2007, we have tested, tried and demonstrated a lot of tailgating gear. That translates into a lot of tailgating product reviews. Some have been good and some have been bad. But because we are a blog, a great product we discovered two or three years ago may be lost in the tons of posts we have published after discovering it. Maybe you are a new reader and haven’t had the time to browse every single post we have done in the past seven years. In order to help out the tailgaters that might not have read about some of these cool tailgating products, we will be doing a feature on products we reviewed a while ago. We call it Featured Gear Friday and this week’s product is: The Kamikaze Liquor Shots Shooter
As you can see in the above photo, The Kamikaze is a new and fun way to dispense liquor shots while out tailgating. We always take it tailgating with us to the San Diego Chargers games and it always gets a great response.
In short, the Kamikaze is a dual-chambered beverage dispenser that keeps liquor and mixers separate until they are mixed together and sprayed into an awaiting mouth. There are no batteries to load and the pressure to spray is created by just a few pumps of the plunger. The shot comes out of the sprayer in a direct stream and you can adjust the liquor to mixer ratio by turning the dial. Turning it to No. 1 and you will get a weaker shot with more mixer than liquor. Turning it all the way to the No. 4, you will get a lot more alcohol and very little mixer. Determine how strong or weak of a shot you and your tailgate party guests would like and serve up some shots in a fun and interactive way.
The beauty of the Kamikaze (outside of the obvious ability to shoot liquor shots into people’s mouths) is the fact that it has two chambers. The liquor is in the rear reservoir while the mixer goers in the front reservoir. So if you make a bad batch of shots you don’t have to throw the whole thing away. Just open up the front reservoir and dump out the inexpensive mixer and the more expensive vodka, tequila, rum, etc. stays quarantined and safe. There are drink recipe suggestions on the back and it even has measuring lines so you can put in multiple mixers without having to dirty a measuring cup.
We have written a review on the Kamikaze, which conversely was originally called The Party Starter, and you can read all about the different features and even see a number of fun and interesting videos. We would suggest putting on your headphones because although the videos are not 100% NSFW they are a bit risque and have some salty language in them.
