Black-Eyed Rye

Cocktail Type | Single Serve
Preakness is Maryland’s greatest day – this is a drink inspired by fast horses and oh-so-slow aged Sagamore Rye Whiskey.


  • 1.5 oz Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey
  • 3 oz of Ginger Beer
  • .5 oz Lime Juice
  • .75 oz Blackberry Simple Syrup
  • 8 to 10 mint leaves


  1. Shake and double strain into a Collins glass.
  2. Top with Ginger Beer.
  3. Garnish with mint sprig and three skewered blackberries.
  4. Blackberry Simple Syrup: Mix equal parts water, sugar, and blackberries in a pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Chill overnight and strain.
