Triple Crown Cocktails: Belmont Jewel

The Belmont Jewel is the official drink of the final leg of the Triple Crown, The Belmont Stakes. This drink replaced the Belmont Breeze as the race’s signature cocktail in 2011. The White Carnation, made with vodka and peach schnapps, has also been a signature cocktail for the race. The Belmont Jewel’s bright and easy-to-sip flavor profile complements the excitement of the potential crowning of a new Triple Crown champion.
