Texas Ranch Water

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 5 minutes

Texas Ranch Water seems to be a big buzzworthy cocktail right now and well, we’ve been drinking it for some time with a little help from our incredibly versatile Chile Margarita blend. So what the heck is Texas Ranch Water, you ask? It’s a mix of blanco tequila, fresh lime juice, Topo Chico mineral water and if you’re feeling spicy, a little chile lime seasoning on the rim.

Our Chile Margarita blend not only kicks up shrimp for tasty tacos, but this blend can add delicious interest to cornbread or sprinkled right on steamed or grilled corn. Don’t forget the rim of your margarita glass to replace that other chili lime seasoning….you know which one I’m talking about (t*jine) 😉 If you’re looking to trim off some of the calories from a typical margarita, this is the best way to do it. 4 ingredients and some ice and you are sipping on the perfect summer cocktail.
