Sure to become a classic, the Belmont Breeze is the new official drink of the Belmont Stakes. It was created by Dale DeGroff, master mixologist from New York City.


  • 1 /2 ounces blended American whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry
  • 1 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup of 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 1 ounce chilled club soda
  • 1 ounce 7-up
  • Lemon slice
  • Mint sprig
  • Whole strawberry


Shake all the liquid ingredients except the club soda and 7-up vigorously with ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with the club soda and 7-up, and stir. Garnish with the lemon slice, mint sprig, and strawberry.
