Gear up for BBQ season with these Justin Timberlake and Sauza® 901® cocktails that were served up at the Tribeca Film Festival after-party for “Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”. Timberlake joined the cast and crew to celebrate, and Sauza® 901® Tequila and JT’s personal mixologist, Eddy Buckingham, mixed up three unique cocktails exclusively for the event – The Memphis Mule, Zarza and The Contemporary.
“The Sauza® 901® signature cocktails were served at the official film after-party on April 14. The Memphis Mule cocktail is a delicious blend of triple-distilled, super premium Sauza® 901® Tequila paired with the tart, refreshing flavor of ginger beer. The Zarza cocktail offers a light, berry flavor, highlighting the spirit’s versatility and smoothness. For those looking for a more robust, deeper-flavored cocktail, The Contemporary is a unique twist on the traditional Old Fashioned and makes for a sophisticated sipper.”
