Horse racing and whiskey cocktails seem to go hand in hand. The official cocktail of the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of horse racing's Triple Crown is the Black Eyed Susan.

Whether you are at the Pimlico race track or watching from home, this easy to make cocktail features bourbon with vodka along with sour mix and orange juice, making it a sort of an enhanced Screwdriver with a tart profile.
