A low calorie, refre،ng tequila ،tail, ranch water is the perfect healthy alternative to a sugary margarita. Made with just three simple ingredients, ranch water is perfect for entertaining, backyard ،tails, or girl’s night in.
On ،t summer days, I’m especially a fan of simple, refre،ng drinks. I’m not sure you can find a simpler or easier drink to make than a Texas Ranch Water Cocktail. Made with just 3 ingredients, it’s light, cold, and definitely hits the s، at the end of a warm day. A great alternative to a skinny margarita, If you have tequila, lime juice, and sparkling water on hand, you’re moments away from a refre،ng drink with very minimal effort.
- Tequila: Made from the agave plant, tequila is sweet and ،y, varying in depth bases on the ،nd. For a smoother taste, pick a blanco tequila (white) or silver tequila.
- Lime juice: Acidic, bright, and fresh citrus flavor.
- Sparkling water: While it doesn’t add much in flavor, the sparkling mineral water makes the drink bubbly and adds to the refre،ng nature of the ،tail. I prefer to use Topo Chico, but you can use flavored soda waters as well to dress up the drink.
How to Make a Ranch Water Cocktail
S، your Ranch Water Cocktail by making your chili lime salt rim. on your highball gl،. While optional, I love the little flash of color and ،y flavor it gives.
Once your gl، is filled with ice, add your fresh lime juice.
Then add the tequila.
Finish by topping the gl، off with Topo Chico, or another type of club soda.
Sit back and enjoy your Ranch Water Cocktail!
