For more than 100 years, sports fans around the world have flocked to Queens, NY to watch best in class tennis at the iconic US Open. While the event took place without spectators last year due to COVID-19, this summer, fans are headed back to Arthur Ashe stadium to celebrate the return of the true US Open experience: cheering from the stands with the tournament’s signature Honey Deuce cocktail in hand.

This year, the Honey Deuce is celebrating its 15th anniversary as the official cocktail of the tournament, counting more than 1 million cocktails sold and thousands of grand slams, surprise wins, and all-star players that have been commemorated with a toast of the pink cocktail.

Named after an equal 40/40 score, the cocktail is comprised of Grey Goose, fresh lemonade, and raspberry liqueur, and is topped with tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls.

If you’re unable to make it to the stadium this year, you can still bring that courtside feeling home with a DIY Honey Deuce. I’ve included the official recipe below for you to share with your readers, as well as purchase details on the official Honey Deuce cocktail kit
