Keyword: Fruity Cocktail, Preakness Cocktail, Themed Party Drink
Servings: 1 Drink


  • 1 part Rum (I use Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum)
  • 1 part Vodka (I use Tito's or Grey Goose)
  • 1 part Triple Sec or your favorite orange liqueur
  • 3-4 parts Orange/Pineapple/Banana juice
  • lime slices (for garnish)
  • Maraschino cherries (for garnish)


  • Fill a glass halfway with ice. 
  • Add rum, vodka, and triple sec. Add enough juice to fill the glass. 
  • Use a cocktail stirrer to mix. Garnish with lime slices and cherries


THIS RECIPE IS IN PARTS. Adjust the parts to the size of the glass so the flavors stay consistent! 
I do not have a cocktail shaker or mesh strainer, so I make the drink in the glass. However, if you do have a shaker/strainer, then make the drink in the shaker and pour over ice
