You can't celebrate The Preakness without sipping a Black-Eyed Susan. Named after the Maryland State Flower, this Black-Eyed Susan is a citrus drink highlighted with Whiskey. I felt it was only appropriate to use Rye Whiskey in this refreshing cocktail, given our state's history with the spirit.

2 ounces Rye Whiskey
2 ounces Orange Juice
1 ounce Lime Juice
1 ounce Simple Syrup
1. Combine ingredients in a shaker.

Photographer and boozy blogger from Baltimore, MD. I find inspiration in the classics while offering my own twist.
I love capturing the wonder of cocktails through photos. Every cocktail has a story and I want to share that story through beautiful imagery.
