Black-Eyed Susan recipe for the 2016 Preakness Stakes

Pimlico Race Course will host the 141st running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday afternoon, with Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist hoping to win another leg on its pursuit of the Triple Crown.

Post time is set for 6:45 p.m. ET on NBC, so how can you pass the time until then?

Well, there is no better way to prepare for the Preakness Stakes than to have the signature drink you would be enjoying at Pimlico, the Black-Eyed Susan. The official recipe of the Black-Eyed Susan for the Preakness includes vodka, bourbon, orange juice and sour mix, garnished with an orange and a cherry.

Sounds pretty delicious, right?

Here is the full recipe:

  • 1 1/4 ounce of vodka
  • 1 ounce of bourbon
  • 2 ounces of orange juice
