High drama at tennis Grand Slam tournaments is nothing new, and at this year’s US Open, all eyes were on Serena Williams, who recently announced her retirement from the sport. Williams electrified the air in Queens with her swan song before exiting in a thrilling three-hour-long third-round loss to unseeded Ajla Tomljanovic.
Vodka brand Grey Goose has seen its share of drama on the court as a sponsor of the US Open since 1987. This year, the vodka brand is offering NYC denizens an opportunity to purchase a limited-edition bottle and complete cocktail kit delivered by Cocktail Courier.
The US Open bottle features geometric shapes behind a tennis racket and ball. Blues and a bright tennis-ball yellow dominate the color palette.
Grey Goose’s US Open cocktail is called The Honey Deuce and gets made with the brand’s vodka, lemonade, and raspberry liqueur, garnished with tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls. The courier-delivered RTD-ish versions are in cans reminiscent of tennis ball packaging, especially when topped with the melon balls. Grey Goose’s blue serves as the background, with cobranding on the front of the can. The cans have a golden finish that contrasts nicely with the blue label. The 4-pack comes in a cardboard carrier with four included straws inside a Grey Goose branded insulated tote bag.
Honey Deuce RTD 4-packs and US Open bottles are available in select NYC zip codes. Grey Goose has published the cocktail recipe online for those that can’t make it to the US Open.
