Dale DeGroff created the Belmont Breeze in 1998 to act as the new official drink of the Belmont Stakes. It replaced the White Carnation and is very similar with the exception of the whiskey, sherry and cranberry, which contribute a note of sophistication to this newer drink. For all of you horse racing fans looking for a great drink, this is the one (along with the Mint Julep and Black-Eyed Susan).
