Belmont Jewel

This year’s Belmont was a huge letdown again, what with California Crome tanking the Triple Crown and his owner going ballistic, comparing Chrome’s loss to thumping a kid in a wheelchair in a game of hoops. All of that nonsense necessitates a drink. Since we have given you the official drink of each of the other Triple Crown races, let’s finish off with the Belmont’s current recipe. It’s only a couple years old, since their last recipe, the Belmont Breeze, had six ingredients, two garnishes, and a shake with mint- talk about a pain when you have to pour thousands of them.
The new drink, called the Belmont Jewel, we actually riffed on for the Stephen King party. Here we give you the unadulterated recipe.

Belmont Jewel
Classic Pour
1 1/2 ounces bourbon (The Belmont uses Knob Creek)
2 ounces lemonade
1 ounce pomegranate juice
Shake all ingredients on ice in a shaker. Strain into a cocktail or rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge or cherry.
