Justin Timberlake’s Lemonade Cocktail Is Like Summer in a Glass
Cry us a river…of tequila, ’cause we’ve got a cocktail to make.
This week, Justin Timberlake is adding “athlete” to his already lengthy resume as he joins a squad of other stars like Kevin Nealon, Charles Barkley, and Larry the Cable Guy in teeing off at the 26th Annual American Century Championship golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California.
Using JT’s tequila brand Sauza 901, mixologist Eddy Buckingham crafted the perfect cocktail for the event, and it’s become the singer’s go-to summer sipper.
The drink is simplicity at its finest: tequila, iced tea, lemonade, and a touch of agave for natural sweetness. Think of it as an Arnold Palmer with an edge. Using these ratios, you can adjust the recipe for a big crowd or treat yourself to a single serving (or two, if we’re being honest.)
