When I told photographer Justin Fox Burks my plans to mix a chocolate liquor with Justin Timberlake's recently released 901 Silver Tequila, he literally flinched!
You see, I was working on something I was going to call a "Mud Island Iced Tea."
Justin's reaction had me re-think that drink. …
You can see what I came up with for the Mud Island Iced Tea and other Memphis-inspired cocktails using 901 in the Flyer that hits the stands Wednesday.
