  • “I was familiar with a Black Russian but the Black Magic variation was unfamiliar to me. An enjoyable drink.”

  • “Delish! I served over ice. This does creep up on ya! Be careful! ;)”

  • “Delicious. These taste GOOD. REALLY good! I downed ’em like chocolate milk. But I’m here to tell you – these are NOT chocolate milk. Be prepared to keep your guests overnight if they like this as much as I did. Because they’re so yummy you don’t want to stop after just one. Or two. Or three. And you don’t want them driving home. You can make a less lethal White Russian by making substituting cream or milk for the vodka and serving over ice. It’s not the same, but you can drive home if you don’t have too many. “
