With the 50th US Open championships just a few weeks away, I’m reaching out to share the recipe of the tournament’s official cocktail, the Grey Goose Honey Deuce. The Honey Deuce is comprised of Grey Goose vodka, freshly squeezed lemonade and raspberry liqueur, accented with tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls.

The Honey Deuce has become a signature feature of the US Open, fueling many late nights at Arthur Ashe stadium watching your favorite pros compete for the Grand Slam.

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Open is introducing the all-new Frozen Honey Deuce this year, perfect as a cool-down for the most heated matches, including Serena Williams’ fairytale comeback.

Both drinks will be served in limited-edition 50th anniversary commemorative cups, which will feature all previous US Open winners, so you can raise a glass to 50 years of champions.

Can’t make it to the Open? Not a problem! The Honey Deuce and Frozen Honey Deuce will be served at several New York hot spots, allowing guests to sip the cocktail while watching the tournament all around the city. Participating bars include 1 Hotel in Dumbo, Pierre New York, The Pennsy, the Ascent Lounge, The Roof and Water Tower Bars in Williamsburg, the Ty Bar at the Four Seasons, and more.

If you prefer to watch the matches from the comfort of your couch, the cocktail is also easy to whip up at home. Please find the Honey Deuce recipe below.
