Well, it's almost time for the running of the Preakness Stakes, and all eyes are on Street Sense, the gorgeous bay colt who barnstormed the Kentucky Derby in such an incredible fashion. WIll there be a triple crown winner this year? Only the fates know for sure, but no matter what, we'll be having great food and excellent drinks to see us through to the last furlong !
Crab Cakes with Louis sauce, smoked oysters and fried chicken, these are the staples for a good Preakness party! But, you've got to have a special drink, and in Maryland on this day it's the Black Eyed Susan!
This is a another classic, and it's so simple to make!
2 parts exceptional Bourbon
1 Part Citron vodka
3 parts sweet and sour mix
1 part freshly squeezed orange juice
Shake together, pour into a goreous tall glass and garnish with a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry (preferably homemade!)
Oh HAY! It's post time and I'll be back after the race!
