Woodford Reserve's Big Brown Chases the Triple Crown cocktail

Big Brown goes for the Triple Crown in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

And for the first time, there will be an official bourbon and an official Triple Cown drink at the race.

Woodford Reserve makes its inaugural trip to the starting gate at Belmont Park as the first-ever "Official Bourbon of the Belmont Stakes."

The award-winning small batch bourbon, also the "Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby," is made in Woodford County, Ky., which is where Big Brown will retire.

5,000 of the cocktails and limited-edition collectible glasses will be available exclusively at Belmont Park on Saturday, June 7, at select bar locations throughout the track.

Each drink will be sold for $15 with $3 per drink going to the two charities.

Woodford Reserve's "Big Brown Chases the Triple Crown" cocktail:

1.5 oz. Woodford Reserve bourbon

3 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix

¼ oz. Chambord

Lemon wedge for garnish

Add the ingredients to a tall glass with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice cubes and garnish with a lemon wedge.
