Kind of like a Long Island iced tea, but with a blue twist!

In VA where I am living these are known as blue motorcycles. I went to Vegas one year where I was introduced to this drink and they call them Black Opals. What ever you call them they are delish and get you buzzed in a second. Read More

This had to be one of the worst drinks I have ever had. I had to change the amounts of the existing ingredients and add a few of my own to make it worth drinking. And you can't put pop in a shaker and shake it! It explodes! So even the instructions were ridiculous. I would not recommend this drink to anyone. Read More

I found this drink in a restaurant when I went out to celebrate my divorce. I loved it then and continue to love it! WARNING....It goes down so smoothly you may not notice when you've had too much until it's too late! Read More

I love this drink! On the west coast and here in NM we call it an Adios which is exactly what you can say if you've had one too many of these drinks! I will agree with an earlier review in regards to the soda and mixing it in the shaker. I usually make it by shaking the alcohol in a shaker and then topping it with the soda sweet and sour and a cherry. Which is much how a Long Island is made... Read More

This was delicious! It reminds me of the Tokyo Iced Tea (which I can't find anywhere on this site!!) It's all the same ingredients but instead of Curacao use Midori and nix the carbonated cola. It's really yummy and you can barely taste the alcohol! Before careful though because it will knock you off your hiney! Read More

This recipe is fantastic! It combines nearly 8 oz. of 40 to 80 proof alcohols with 2 oz. of soda (BTW Earlier comment on soda-in-shaker combo impossibility Nope! Works good.) I much prefer it the way it is written but my wife loves this blended with a scoop of ice cream instead of over ice. Good stuff! Read More
