The Black Eyed Susan

The Preakness was last Saturday.  Unfortunately, a fussy Baby Rye did not allow me to get this cocktail up in time for the race.  The Black Eyed Susan is the traditional cocktail of The Preakness.  Like most cocktails, finding a definitive recipe is a challenge.  Most of the versions that I found used light rum as the base spirit, though I did find versions that used whiskey.  The rum is mixed with varying amounts of vodka, orange juice and sour mix.  Basically, it's a daiquiri.

Jim's Black Eyed Susan
2 parts Kracken Spiced Rum
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Limeade
1/2 part Orange Juice
Lots of ice

It's a tasty, "pinky out" drink with a kick.
