Tracking the Origins and Present Status of Queens' Own Mint Julep—the Honey Deuce of the U.S. Open.
I love this story! What the deuce!!
Going to make one tonight. Damn it sounds good! Love the story.
Lovely piece, Robert! I’ve enjoyed a Pimm’s Cup in England at Ascot but have never been to the Derby or Open. What a stellar business the Deuce is. Those numbers are staggering. Another excellent newsletter!
Fascinating. Reason enough, I suppose, to attend the Open, to which I have not previously been drawn.
Beach Boys allusion seemed to come out of nowhere, but appreciated nonetheless.
Terrific! We've been doing variations of this (unbeknownst - this is my very first awareness of the Honey Deuce!) for our towns "First Friday's" events for a few years - vodka lemonade with a fruit twist - strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, even cucumber. I can confirm - the general public LOVES this combo. Fun story
