Black-Eyed Susan Recipe

Black-eyed SusanDrinks of the Triple Crown
The second jewel in the triple crown, The Preakness, is being run tomorrow in Baltimore, Maryland. The race was first run in 1873 and was won by a horse named Survivor. The signature drink at the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course is the Black-Eyed Susan and is named after Maryland's state flower. In recent years, this drink has been made with Bourbon instead of rum due to the influence of corporate sponsors like Early Times Whiskey. However, the Black-Eyed Susan recipe listed below is an older version of the drink that existed prior to the scourge of corporate advertising.

1 shot Cointreau
1 shot white rum
1 shot vodka
1 6oz. can of pineapple juice
3/4 cup orange juice
crushed ice
lime (for garnish)

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a shaker.
  2. Shake until your arm hurts.
  3. Pour the mixture into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lime.
