The traditional drink of the Belmont Stakes since 1998 and invented by Dale DeGroff. The previous drink was the White Carnation. This is the most expensive of the Triple Crown drinks at $10 a glass so you might want to try this one at home.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 oz. Seagrams 7
  • 3/4 oz. Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 1 1/2 oz. Fresh Orange juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. Cranberry juice
  • 1 oz. of soda
  • 1 oz. of 7up
  • fresh strawberry
  • lemon wedge
  • (you may substitute 1 oz. of Sweet & Sour mix for the lemon juice and simple syrup although fresh ingredients are best)


Shake first 6 ingredients with ice and top with half 7up and half soda, approximately one ounce of each. Garnish with fresh strawberry, a mint sprig, and a lemon wedge.

FYI - In 2008 a Belmont Breeze cost $10 at Belmont Park on Belmont Stakes day.
