There is an interesting side note about this somewhat popular mixed drink. Until it was replaced in 1998 by Dale DeGroff's variation of it, The Belmont Breeze, the White Carnation was the official drink of the Belmont Stakes. Both drinks are worthy of the status associated with the last leg of horse racing's Triple Crown.
