Have you ever had a kamikaze shot before? They are dee-lish! These sweet little shooters can be leisurely sipped, but are usually enjoyed quickly after a group cheers to get the party started.
Typically made with simple syrup and triple sec, the traditional kamikaze shot can easily cost you over 50 grams of net carbs per drink! To put this into perspective for those of us following the keto diet, this is over double our allotted carb count for an entire days worth of eating… in one swift gulp. Unacceptable!

I’m of the firm belief that you can make any recipe low in carbs, including this sugary party pleaser. You can get a nearly identical taste using a low carb sweetener like Splenda, Erythritol or Stevia in place of the triple sec and syrup.
This kamikaze shot recipe is low carb, sugar free and soooooo (…ooooooooo) good! If you love sweet cocktails but have committed to following the keto diet, this is for YOU! Total carb count is less than 3 net carbs. That’s a far cry from 50! You have to try this, it will not disappoint.
The best part is that you can’t even tell this is a healthy, “diet” cocktail… it tastes just like the ones your favorite bartender would serve up but without all the carbs.
The ingredients are simple and accessible; no mixologist sorcery here! Just vodka, lime juice and low carb sweetener. You’ll also want to grab a shaker and some ice to chill the drink really well. Brad (my hubs) and I filmed a quick video to show you how easy it is to make a kamikaze shot. He even hand modeled for me, thanks babe!
Note on the sweetener: I used Splenda for my low carb sweeter in this recipe, but I’ve tried it with Stevia as well and couldn’t personally tell the difference. You can use whatever low carb sugar substitute floats your boat and have the same awesome results for your kamikaze shot!
