RECIPE: The Official Cocktail Of The U.S. Open

The U.S. Open runs through September 13. It has an official cocktail, the Honey Deuce, created by sponsor Grey Goose Vodka. If you’re watching the Open today, mix up a Honey Deuce and toast along with the crowds at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows. You’ll save the $12 it costs at the Open, although you won’t get the souvenir cup.

Here’s the Honey Deuce recipe; it makes one drink:


  • 1-1/4 ounces Grey Goose Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Chambord or another premium raspberry liqueur
  • Lemonade (homemade is best)
  • 3-4 honeydew melon balls, frozen
  • Ice (crushed ice recommended)

    1. Freeze melon balls: Place them in a the freezer in a single layer in a sealed plastic bag, for an hour or overnight.
    2. Fill a chilled Collins glass with ice. Add vodka, then pour in lemonade to half an inch below the rim.
    3. Sprinkle raspberry liqueur over the top of the ice, so it slowly trickles down.
    3. Garnish with melon balls, speared on a long cocktail pick if you wish.
