The Best Texas Ranch Water Recipe

Ingredients: – 2 oz Tequila – 1 oz Fresh lime juice – 4 oz Sparkling water – Ice cubes – Lime wedges, for garnish – Coarse salt (optional)

Instructions: 1. Start by gathering all your ingredients and equipment. You'll need a cocktail shaker, a jigger, a knife, a cutting board, and glasses for serving.

If you like, prepare your glasses by running a lime wedge around the rim and dipping it into coarse salt. This step is optional but adds a nice touch of flavor.

Fill your cocktail shaker with ice cubes. The more ice, the better, as it will help chill your drink quickly without diluting it too much.

Measure out 2 ounces of your favorite tequila using the jigger and pour it into the shaker.

Squeeze the juice of one fresh lime into the shaker, making sure to remove any seeds. Fresh lime juice is key to achieving that authentic Texan flavor.

Secure the lid on your shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. You want to really mix those ingredients together and get everything nice and cold.

Once shaken, strain the mixture into your prepared glasses filled with ice. Top each glass off with sparkling water, leaving a little room at the top for garnish.

Garnish your Ranch Water with a lime wedge on the rim of the glass for that extra pop of citrus flavor.

Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing taste of Texas in every sip!
