The White Carnation is a simple and tasty drink that has the flavor of an orange cream soda. The ingredients are all pretty standard in the average bar and though it has lost some of its notoriety in recent years, it remains a fun drink to revisit.

There is an interesting side note about this once rather popular mixed drink. Until it was replaced in 1998 by Dale DeGroff's variation of it, The Belmont Breeze, the White Carnation was the official drink of the Belmont Stakes. Both drinks are worthy of the status associated with the last leg of horse racing's Triple Crown.
