I was always leery of making the official drink of The Preakness Stakes (Post Time 6:45pm this evening!) because it seemed too high maintenance compared to The Mint Julep. It really isn't that complex though and sounds delicious.

The Elderflower Liquor is by far the most exotic of the ingredients and yet, if you look on the NH Liquor Store website, you'll find it at almost every single location!

Besides, if any of your friends complain that their orange juice/pineapple juice/vodka drink is LACKING something, are they TRULY a friend worth having?

Be safe and enjoy responsibly!
