Spicy Pineapple Ranch Water

This spicy pineapple ranch water is a refreshing twist on the classic ranch water cocktail. It’s so simple, low carb and can easily be made into a mocktail too!

If you’ve never heard of Ranch Water it’s a light, fizzy drink with tequila, soda water and limes. It’s a great sip in the warm summer months and is very low cal too! One of the other great things about Ranch Water is how easily customizable it is! If you prefer to have a mocktail, simply leave out the tequila for a bubbly drink. Or if you like something more spicy, add some jalapenos, like I did last year. You can see my spicy ranch water recipe here.

With Cinco De Mayo approaching and the summer around the corner, I was inspired to try a new twist with sweet pineapple. The end result was so good!!! I’m sharing my recipe below.

Spicy Ranch Water

Spicy Ranch Water

Have you tried Ranch Water? It’s a refreshing, low calorie cocktail. I decided to give it a little kick since I have discovered my love of spicy beverage. Scroll down for my easy spicy ranch water recipe anytime you want a nice cool tequila cocktail with a little punch.

What is Ranch Water?

Ranch Water originally was made in Texas out of Topo Chico mineral water, limes and tequila. It was the cattle ranchers preferred beverage to cool off after a long day of working in the heat. With just a few ingredients, it’s super easy to make and is more of like the casual sibling of the margarita.

Spicy Ranch Water

Ranch water on it’s own is very refreshing but I wanted to give it a little extra kick. I’ve never been a fan of spicy things but last year I fell in love with spicy margaritas. A friend of ours gave us a bunch of jalapenos from their garden and I made this Spicy Watermelon Margarita (click here for the recipe).

The jalapenos add a nice heat and are balanced by the coolness of the bubbly Topo Chico so it’s not too incredibly spicy. Rim your glass with a little Tajin seasoning for some salty spice with each sip.

And you’ve also got to try my Spicy Pineapple Ranch Water which is amazing!!! Click here for the recipe.

Spicy Ranch Water

Ingredients:

  • Topo chico mineral water
  • Blanco tequila (my favorite is Casa Amigos)
  • Lime sliced into wedges
  • 1 jalapeno sliced.
  • Tajin seasoning

Directions:

1.) Start by rimming your glass with some Tajin seasoning. (I found this Tajin seasoning rimmer on Amazon)

2.) Fill your glass with ice. I like to use a rocks glass, like this set. Squeeze the juice from a wedge of lime and add the lime wedge and a few slices of jalapenos.

3.) Add your tequila. I don’t measure so use your judgement 😉

4.) Fill to the top with Topo Chico and stir.

5.) Add a few more jalapeno slices to garnish.

Enjoy!!!
