In honor of the first official day of the US Open, this week's blog post is dedicated to tennis. Alex and I went to the practice day yesterday at the tennis center to catch some players warming up for their upcoming matches. It's such a great time to go since the area isn't yet swarmed with thousands of guests and you don't have to wait in a huge line to score one of Grey Goose's Honey Deuce cocktails... (recipe to follow).
Bonus: You get to keep the souvenir cup!
I personally love tennis and grew up playing it so it was no surprise that my first tie that had anything to do with sports would be a tennis tie. It's aptly named "At Your Service" – and whether in a tie, bow tie or the brand new pocket square, it's sure to be a hit for the tennis enthusiast in your life!
As a bonus, I'm including the recipe for the Honey Deuce cocktail. It's super easy and whether you're making cocktails for one or a group of people, this recipe is easily multiplied and isn't too labor intensive!
What you need: Makes one drink.
In a highball glass with ice, add:
3 shots of vodka
Fill the rest with lemonade
A dash of Chambord
Add honeydew melon balls as a garnish – it’s an excellent compliment to the flavors in the drink (I also love adding green grapes to the bottom of the drink)
