The Official Cocktail Of The US Open Will Be Available For Delivery

A day at the ballpark is often spent eating a hot dog and washing it down with a cold beer while watching the horses at the Kentucky Derby is accompanied by a refreshing and potent mint julep. Several sporting events have associated food and beverages, including the U.S. Open tennis championship, which is set to start on Aug. 29. Since 2007, the tennis competition has partnered with Grey Goose for its signature cocktail, according to Ocean Drive

Lasting for two weeks, the U.S. Open hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors (more than 700,000 in 2019, per NBC News), meaning there are many hungry and thirsty people. According to Ocean Drive, about 1 million glasses of Grey Goose's signature U.S. Open cocktail are sold each year. With the forecast for the U.S. Open calling for highs mainly in the 80s and 90s, per Accuweather, people will also be searching for something to quench their thirst, and Grey Goose hopes it's their refreshing cocktail.

A play on raspberry lemonade

There are several ways to enjoy the signature U.S. Open cocktail, the Grey Goose Honey Deuce, whether at home or in the stands. This year, Manhattan and Brooklyn residents will be able to enjoy the Grey Goose Honey Deuce courtesy of Cocktail Courier, which will provide home delivery of 8-ounce canned versions of the Honey Deuce cocktails, per Ocean Drive.

For those not living in New York City and wanting to imbibe in a Grey Goose Honey Deuce, the vodka maker has published the recipe on its website, calling it a "refreshing take on a raspberry lemonade." To make the cocktail, you'll need Grey Goose vodka, fresh lemonade, Chambord, and honeydew melon balls for the garnish, which are meant to represent tennis balls. The company has even provided a recipe for a frozen version. In addition to the garnish paying homage to the sport of tennis, "deuce" is the tennis term used for a tied 40/40 score, according to My Tennis Outfitter. 

Whether you watch the U.S. Open from the stands or on your couch, you can get in the tennis spirit with your own can or glass of Grey Goose Honey Deuce.
