This cocktail was made at Tark’s Grill, which is located in an area affectionately called “The Station.” So if you are from out of town, it is Greenspring Station. Tark’s is a favorite of many in the Lutherville area. On warm days and nights you can eat outside in the courtyard surrounded by flowers and bushes with a water fountain. What better way to woo your girl? Inside there are three parts to the restaurant, the formal seating area, bar with its own tables and a private area.

“Black Eyed Susan” is close to the Mai Tai and Orange Crush families. It’s a perfect cocktail for this time of year with its fruit blends and the alcohol subduing the fruit and adding a little life. A very refreshing cocktail, this is the official cocktail of The Preakness.
