Black-eyed Susans? Yes! I'll Have Another.

Black Eyed Susan drink.

By Kelley Midland


What better way to cheer I'll Have Another to a Preakness victory than with a well-chilled Black-Eyed Susan? 


I can't make it to Pimlico, but it's a sure bet this fruity beverage treat will take center stage at my Preakness Party!


The Official Black-eyed Susan recipe calls for:

3/4 oz 42 Below Vodka

1-1/4 oz Early Times Kentucky Whisky

3 oz sweet & sour mix

2 oz orange juice

Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.


You can find this recipe at http://www.preakness.com/preakness-tradition/black-eyed-susan-official-drink-preakness.  

But we know how to make a cocktail in the south.  I'll stick with the southern recipe. With any luck, they will wear off in time for the Belmont!  

Black-eyed Susan Southern Style:

3/4 cup orange juice

1/2 cup pineapple juice

3 tablespoons vodka

3 tablespoons light rum

2 tablespoons orange liqueur


Stir ingredients and pour over crushed ice. Garnish with orange slices, lime slices, or fresh cherries.

My Preakness Pick?  Isn't it obvious?
