There are several sporting events that might have a liquor or beer sponsor, but is rare for an event to have a specific cocktail named after it. However, that is one of the things that distinguishes the Belmont Jewel from the rest.

The drink is known as an “official” drink of The Belmont Stakes, which is actually the third leg of the Triple Crown competition, which has been a consistent horseracing competition in the United States since the mid-to-late 1800s. Bourbon has almost always been the drink of choice when it comes to horseracing events, and this simple cocktail has grown more and more popular.


  • 1 ½ ounces of Woodford Reserve bourbon whiskey
  • 2 ounces of lemonade
  • 1 ounce of pomegranate juice
  • Ice


  1. Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into an old-fashioned glass, over ice.


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Old-fashioned glass

Common garnishes are lemon wedges or cherries, although these aren’t necessary. Believe it or not, this is not the first drink associated with the Belmont Stakes, as the Jewel’s precedents include the Belmont Breeze, and before that, the White Carnation. It should also be noted that Woodford Reserve is not necessary for it to be a Belmont Jewel, and that the recipe often changes depending on the events’ sponsorships, which makes sense, given how much money that the Triple Crown generates in general. Of course, the drink should only be consumed by bourbon lovers. The additional ingredients make it a great summer drink, even though bourbon is not traditionally associated with the season. For those who are throwing parties, the drink can also be transformed into a punch to serve a large amount of guests. Regardless, it doesn’t matter whether you have a “horse in this race or not”, the Belmont Jewel is a refreshing and great summer drink!
