ranch water cocktail

It’s no surprise that this refreshing cocktail was born in often-sweltering Western Texas. A sort of effervescent, less-sweet version of a Margarita, only 3 ingredients are required for Ranch Water: tequila, lime juice, and seltzer. (Preferably Topo Chico; some claim it’s not a real Ranch Water without it!) We like adding a splash of orange liqueur like Cointreau for a little added sweetness and citrus flavor, but it can be left out or substituted for ¼ ounce simple syrup.

Serve these up on hot days with an extra wedge of lime for squeezing and the remaining seltzer to top it off as you drink. Summer heat doesn’t stand a chance.
