(Lloyd Fox, Baltimore Sun /May 12, 2014)
Richard Gorelick seems content to let a hundred black-eyed Susans bloom with recipes featuring the likes of ginger beer, Fernet Branca and elderflower liqueur ("New life for black-eyed Susan drink at Preakness," May 12).
I say save your exotics for the betting window. Come post time on Preakness Day, pop open a Maryland brew or a Natty Boh if you must. Then put some ice in an Old-Fashioned glass and top with a generous pour of good rye. If it needs a name, call it a Lazy Susan.
