There’s no denying that being a mixologist seems like a pretty sweet job, especially if you’re Eddy Buckingham. Being the go-to cocktail guru for 901 Tequila means he’s also the personal mixologist to the brand’s founder—none other than Justin Timberlake.
The multi-talented singer is also a tequila connoisseur who loved the stuff enough to create his own brand in conjunction with Sauza, and his partnership with Buckingham has sparked a slew of delicious recipes, including this sweet and herbal summer sip. “The Just in Thyme is a great drink for entertaining at home in the warmer months. It’s super simple to prepare but has depth and interest,” says Buckingham. “The thyme garnish is a simple and aesthetic touch but gives the drink a beautiful herbaceous scent that plays perfectly off the tequila and lemon. It’s a sneaky secret that such a simple drink can look and taste this good!”
