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)
