Black Eyed Susans

Yesterday at Pimlico, i had my first sip of Black Eyed Susan, their answer to mint julips, the traditional drink of Churchill Downs.  Now, I love mint julips, but that little taste of Black Eyed Susan was truly the nectar of the gods.  So, I searched Google with no luck for the recipe.  

But I have more good luck than many people.  My cousin, Patrick Noon, is a bartender.  Not just any bartender.  When Patrick worked at Murphy's Pub in Woodley Park, we was named Washingtonian Magazine's Irish Bartender of the Year!  And a few minutes ago, out of nowhere, his wife sent me the recipe for my new favorite drink!

If you want to try one, here's the official Pimlico recipe:

INGREDIANTS"

  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 1 part Mount Gay rum
  • 1 part Vodka
  • Pineapple juice
  • Orange juice

PREPARATION:

Fill a highball glass with shaved ice, add the booze, top it off with equal parts of fruit juice.  Stir and garnish with a lime wedge or orange slice.

I'm on my way to the grocery store for some fruit juice!

Hmmm.  What will Pat post later this evening?
