How to make a Dewar’s Lemon Wedge, the U.S. Open’s refreshing official cocktail

The Dewar's Lemon Wedge is simple and refreshing — a perfect summer cocktail.


Some sporting events are synonymous with their accompanying cocktails: Wimbledon has the Pimm’s Cup; the Kentucky Derby has the Mint Julep; the Masters, the Azalea.

And at this year’s U.S. Open, fans can enjoy the Dewar’s Lemon Wedge — a refreshing blend of Dewar’s 12-year Scotch whisky, club soda and lemonade.

The best part about the Lemon Wedge is its delicious simplicity. Here’s how to concoct one of your own.

Dewar’s Lemon Wedge

• 1.5 oz Dewar’s 12
• 3 oz club soda
• 2 oz lemonade

Combine all ingredients over ice in a highball glass and garnish with a lemon wheel. (If you’re looking for maximum authenticity, spear that lemon with a golf tee!)
