Ranch Water

Ranch Water highball cocktail with tequila, lime juice, simple syrup, and sparkling water

Half-Margarita, half-Tom Collins, the Ranch Water is an eminently refreshing drink said to have originated in Marfa, Texas.

The most important ingredient is the sparkling water. In Marfa, you’ll find it made only with Topo Chico, an exceptionally effervescent mineral water made in Mexico. You can use any good sparkling water you like, or even a flavored sparkling water (lime Lacroix is a favorite of ours).

The precise amount of syrup to use is a matter of personal preference. Some folks prefer theirs bone-dry, but we typically add a scant barspoon to ours.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
