Two weeks ago, a great deal of people put on extravagant hats, got together to watch a horse race, and proceeded to get inebriated on mint juleps. Since the second leg of the Triple Crown is tomorrow, it's a good reason to throw another get-together in case you didn't get enough horse racing the first time around. But you can't just make those mint juleps again; those are a Kentucky tradition, and the Preakness is in Maryland. What to do?
It turns out, the Preakness has its own official cocktail: the Black-Eyed Susan. While it doesn't have the storied history of the mint julep, it's still worth your attention this weekend.
