The Black Eyed Susan Cocktail is the official drink of the Preakness, and is one of my favorite drinks even when horse racing isn’t going on!

How to Make a Black Eyed Susan Cocktail

I’ve never actually been to the Preakness, but my husband and I have gone to Keeneland for the past few years to watch it. We love the atmosphere, and even if you can’t be at the Preakness, you almost feel like you are there. There are televisions everywhere showing the races, and you can even bring a picnic and throw your own Preakness party there…it’s so much fun. They also serve drinks, including the official drink of the Preakness, the Black-Eyed Susan. I’ll never forget the first time I had one…I took one sip and decided right then and there that this was going to be my go to drink for the summer! I insisted my husband get one too (mostly so I wouldn’t have to share mine) and he loved it as well.
