What Is Ranch Water? (And the Recipe to Make It)


Said to have originated as a favored refreshment among West Texas ranchers, Ranch Water is a simple tequila highball that has grown in popularity to become a summertime staple across the U.S.

The ingredients for Ranch Water are as simple as they come: tequila, lime juice and sparkling water. This places the drink in a cocktail category that dates to the 1800s, the Rickey, which adheres to the same structure but using either gin or bourbon. Whatever the base liquor, the combination creates a refreshing sugar-free drink that’s as tasty in a cocktail bar as it is outdoors under the afternoon sun.
