Ranch Water Cocktail

Ranch Water Cocktail

If you’re looking for a refreshing and easy-to-make cocktail, you might want to try Ranch Water. Originally from Texas, this drink has become quite popular among locals and visitors alike. It’s made with just three ingredients – tequila, lime, and Topo Chico – to give it that perfect balance of flavours. Whether you’re relaxing by the pool or having a night out, Ranch Water is the perfect drink to cool you down and add some Texan taste to your evening.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces (1 shot) blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce (1/2 shot) fresh lime juice
  • Topo Chico (or other sparkling mineral water), to top
  • Lime wedge, for garnish

Instructions:

  1.  Fill a highball glass or tumbler with ice.
  2. Pour in the tequila and squeeze in the fresh lime juice.
  3. Add the Topo Chico until the glass is full.
  4. Give it a gentle stir, garnish with a lime wedge, and enjoy immediately!

Tips:

  • Tequila choice: Blanco (or silver) tequila is traditional in Ranch Water for its clean, crisp flavour.
  • Lime matters: Freshly squeezed lime juice is essential for the best flavour.
  • Topo Chico is key: The high carbonation and mineral content of Topo Chico are a big part of the Ranch Water experience. If you can’t find Topo Chico, another quality sparkling mineral water will do.

Variations:

  • Spicy kick: Muddle a few slices of jalapeño in the bottom of the glass before adding the other ingredients.
  • Citrus twist: Add a splash of fresh grapefruit juice or grapefruit soda.
  • Salty rim: Dip the rim of your glass in lime juice and then into salt or Tajín (a Mexican chilli-lime seasoning).
