If you are looking for a light, refreshing cocktail to cool you off on a hot day, this is it! Made with tequila, lime juice, and Topo Chico mineral water, Ranch Water is a fizzy and invigorating refreshment that is sure to quench your thirst.
Similar to the classic Margarita, Ranch water is more bubbly while less sweet. Where the name came from exactly isn’t clear, but what is agreed upon is that the cocktail originates from the great state of Texas. Whipping up a round of Ranch Waters is quick and easy!
