This drink is the best! Very Strong but very good. But 2 is more than enough.

Best drink ever! I have also heard it called "The Greatful Dead". Used to make this by the gallons for parties, its a hit with everyone!

Absolutely love this drink....and I haven't been to a bar that sells them that doesn't have a limit of two. Goes down so easy though.....

This is the drink for people who want something sweet, love their alcohol but hate the taste! Two should really be your max!

A friend introduced me to the black opal in Spokane, WA. Loved it! I'm one of those who likes a good buzz but hates the taste of drinks like the standard Rum n'Coke. So, this fruity lil drink packs a punch but tastes great! Hooked!

Vodka is one of my favorite summer liquors, and that is the taste that presents more than anything!! It's delicious, but I agree, two is enough!!

Really tasty and isn't strong. Try it without the tequila; it's much smoother that way.

I drank this down like juice! I regretted it later on. Yummy though!

This is my new favorite drink,it does not taste at all like liquor but definitley gives the desired effect!

Delicious! This is a great drink for someone who wants a strong drink but not the taste of a strong drink. Be careful, they go down quick and easy. I introduced my girlfriend to this drink and she wanted another and another and another. Two max or there may be trouble!
