More Racing-Themed Drinks

Apparently, the Kentucky Derby isn’t the only part of the Triple Crown with its own signature drink (the Julep, of course). The “Black-eyed Susan” is often served at the Preakness, and at the Belmont Stakes, it’s Long Island Iced Tea!

Long Island Iced Tea


Ingredients:

6 Tbsp. Sweet-and-sour mix
3 Tsp. Vodka
3 Tbsp. Gin
3 Tbsp. Orange liqueur (Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
3 Tbsp. Light rum
3 Tbsp. Tequila
Crushed ice
6 Tbsp Coca-cola (or other cola drink)
Garnish (lemon slices)

Directions:

Combine the sweet-and-sour mix with all the alcohols and the ice in a cocktail shaker. Cover with the lid and shake for 30 seconds, or until well chilled.

Remove the lid and strain into 2 chilled martini glasses.

Pour the cola into each glass, garnish and serve immediately.

Black-Eyed Susan Cocktail


(This drink’s name is taken from the flowers that make up the blanket draping the winning horse at the Preakness.)

½ cup pineapple juice
3 Tbsp. Vodka
3 Tbsp. Light rum
2 Tbsp. Orange Liquer (Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
Crushed Ice
Garnish (lime slices/fresh cherries)

Directions:

Stir together the juices and alcohol.

Fill 2 12-oz glasses with the crushed ice.

Pour the juice-alcohol mixture over the ice.

Garnish and serve immediately.

Basil (not mint) Julep


(If you place a short cocktail straw near the basil sprig garnish, you can enhance the pleasure of the drink by sniffing the fragrance as you sip.)

Ingredients:

3 fresh basil leaves
1 Tbsp. basil simple syrup (recipe below)
Crushed ice
2 Tbsp (1 oz) bourbon
1 (4-inch) cocktail straw
1 fresh basil sprig (you DO have basil in your herb garden, doncha?)
Powdered sugar (optional)

Directions:

Place the basil leaves and basil simple syrup in a julep cup or 8 to 10 oz glass. Gently press the leaves against the side of the cup with the back of a spoon to relase the oils.

Pack the cup tightly with crushed ice and pour the boubon over the ice.

Insert the straw, placing the basil sprig directly next to the straw.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if you wish.

BASIL SIMPLE SYRUP


(This recipe makes about a cup and a half. After making it, cool it for an hour and chill for a day. Make the syrup the day before you plan to make your Basil Julep. Once the basil is discarded, keep the syrup in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. BTW. . .it goes great in your unsweetened iced tea!)



Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 Cup Water
1 cup firmly packed fresh basil sprigs

Directions:

Bring the sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil in a medium saucepan.

Boil, stirring often, 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved.

Remove from heat; add the basil and cool completely (about an hour). Pour into a glass gar. Cover and chill 24 hours.

Remove and discard basil.

(If you insist on a MINT julep, substitute mint for the basil in these recipes)
