A Cocktail In Honor Of The Australian Open: The Illusion Shaker (Recipe)

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!

Oh yes, the Australian Open is upon us again! It’s that time of year when tennis gets back into the swing of things and opens with the first of the slams. Sadly, unlike the US Open, which has a signature cocktail, the Honey Deuce, the Australian Open doesn’t have one. Oh, sure… you could have beer, but where’s the fun in that?

Fortunately for those of us who are non-beer drinkers, the peeps at the Drink Blog created this fantastic neon concoction called “The Illusion Shaker,” and it’s really, really tasty!

Give it a try and tell us what you think! Better yet, post it on Instagram and tag us @tennislifemagazine with #tennislifemagazine and we’ll give you a shoutout!
