imageThe Preakness is the second leg of the Triple Crown, held two weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks before the Belmont Stakes.

The Black Eyed Susan is the official cocktail of the Preakness Stakes, however, we prefer classic cocktails in the Barroom. We’ve placed our bets, time to sit back and sip on this delightful concoction.

1.5 oz Bourbon or Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
1/2 Barspoon Benedictine
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until cold. Garnish with a lemon twist.
