Made from ice-cold vodka, fresh lemonade, raspberry liqueur and garnished with festive, frozen honeydew melon balls, it’s a celebratory sip that refreshes in the hot sun and keep the mood cool.
More than 1 million glasses are served during the two-week tournament, but you don’t have to be in the stadium to toast the good times.
Grey Goose is proud to share the official recipe for the Honey Deuce cocktail below, so tennis fans can imbibe from the comfort of their own couches, catching each and every moment of the action without missing a beat or hitting the bar.
What’s more, New York City residents can actually order canned Hone Deuce cocktails via Cocktail Courier as long as the tournament is underway. The 8-ounce cans are available to anyone living in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the link goes live with the official kick-off on Monday, Aug. 29.
For the rest of us, fresh from our own cocktail carts will do just fine. Follow the easy recipe below, and enjoy the bright taste of citrus, berries and victory while you take in the wins. a
