Prepare for the Preakness with its signature drink

It's considered bad form, and maybe bad luck, to watch the Kentucky Derby without a mint julep in hand, but did you know that the Preakness also has an official drink?

It's called the Black-Eyed Susan, named after the flowers that adorn the neck of the winning horse.

So pick your favorite horse, pour yourself a cocktail and enjoy Saturday's race.

Black-Eyed Susan

3/4 ounce vodka

1 1/4 ounce whiskey

3 ounces sweet and sour mix

2 ounces of orange juice

Garnish: orange slice and cherry
