While the rally might benefit the baseliner, the ace is the quick point which can lead to an easy game. As an Official Partner of the US Open, Aperol is ready to raise a glass to The Perfect Serve cocktail. It is time to Join the Joy and take a sip of the good life.

As tennis fans converge on Flushing Meadows, many people enjoy a libation while watching some of the best players, serve, volley and smash their way to victory. Although there is the traditional US Open cocktail, Aperol’s partnership is ready to slice off a new option for people who thirst for a lighter choice.

With summer being spritz season, many people have been enjoying the effervescent aperitif. From the vibrant color to the iconic Aperol flavor, it has become the cocktail of warm, sunny days.

To celebrate all the play on the court, Aperol has two locations at the US Open that will be serving its Perfect Serve cocktail. Near Court 5, an authentic Italian Apé Truck will be the meeting place in between early round matches. In addition, a bright orange, indoor-outdoor patio near the Arthur Ashe Stadium entrance will be another gathering place for guests.

Whether it is an iconic match under the lights or the unlikely upset on the grandstand, many people will want to talk about all the big shots. These Aperol gathering spots are those perfect spots.

Leaning into the Join the Joy sentiment, the liquor brand celebrates that Italian notion of gathering with friends and enjoying a great cocktail. Sometimes a little sipper can make the conversation flow even more easily and make the afternoon pass even more quickly.

For those people who may be unable to make it to NYC for the big event, Cocktail Courier is offering a kit to shake up the event’s libation at home. Whether it is the drink to enjoy while watching Novak Djokovic try to win his 24th Grand Slam or wondering if New York native Jessica Pegula could win the title, it is as easy as 3-2-1 to enjoy this cocktail. Here’s how.
