It’s just about time for the Preakness Stakes, which means it’s just about time to make yourself a Black-Eyed Susan, the official drink of the annual race.

Black-Eyed Susan is to Preakness as mint julep is to Kentucky Derby, so if you’re feeling fancy or thirsty or both (or neither, I guess), here’s a handy recipe for making your own drink.

Check out the video above to see how to put it all together. 

Enjoy responsibly, of course.
