No matter if you are watching the August tennis tournament or not, you’ll find the honey deuce a mouthwatering cocktail. The raspberry flavor of Chambord balances out the tart lemonade with just a hint of sweetness, and the honeydew balls go well with the tennis theme. Moreover, mixing up a single drink or a whole round for the entire party takes just a few minutes, so anyone can do it in no time.
A simple and refreshing vodka and lemonade drink with a hint of raspberry and melon garnish, the honey deuce has a simple yet delicious taste. The cocktail is ideal for summer and is a great way to cool down on a hot day. The vodka lemonade here isn’t your average drink, however. There is something special about this recipe because it is the official cocktail of the United States.
- Since it’s easier to pour a full shot of vodka with this recipe, a little more vodka is used than is specified in the original recipe. Although you may choose to pour less if you like, most drinkers tend to enjoy a longer shot rather than a short one anyway.
- It is impossible to overstate the importance of fresh-squeezed lemonade in any cocktail. There are some pre-made lemonades that are too sweet for mixed drinks, and they tend to overpower the balance of flavors.
Ideally, Chambord is the best brand of liqueur for this drink. The sweet tart flavor of the black raspberry pairs well with the sweetness of the lemonade. If you prefer, you can still choose one of the other raspberry or blackberry liqueurs on offer.
