Preakness Manhattan With Bourbon Whiskey, Cognac, Benedictine D.o.m., Sweet Vermouth, Angostura Bitters

The Preakness Stakes, an annual horse race held at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on the third Saturday of May, has inspired a delightful libation known as the Preakness cocktail. Crafted by Allen Katz, a renowned mixologist, spirits connoisseur, and the visionary behind the esteemed New York Distilling Company, this drink bears a striking resemblance to the classic Manhattan.

While staying true to the original recipe with a minor modification, Katz introduces a subtle yet profound twist by incorporating a splash of Benedictine liqueur. Notably, the Preakness cocktail veers away from tradition by garnishing it with a zestful lemon peel that imparts a refreshing brightness, enhancing the already rich and captivating flavor profile of the beverage. Embrace the spirit of Preakness and indulge in this extraordinary concoction.
