Made to pay homage to the world’s most exciting tennis tournament, the Honey Deuce cocktail is comprised of Grey Goose Vodka, freshly squeezed lemonade, and raspberry liqueur, topped with tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls. The sporty drink is named after the most thrilling moment in tennis when the score is tied 40-40—resulting in a “deuce.”
For many years this drink has been an iconic feature of the US Open, fueling late nights in Arthur Ashe stadium. But for those who are unable to attend this popular event, you’re in luck! The Honey Deuce will be served at Manhattan hot spots like the Pierre, Four Seasons, and Dream Midtown.
Even better, the drink is easy to make at home, so be sure to keep with style and serve to guests during your US Open viewing parties!
