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 Pineapple Ranch Water

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle of Topo Chico or other sparkling mineral water
  • Blanco tequila (I like Casa Amigos and I don’t measure)
  • Pineapple juice
  • Fresh pineapple
  • Sliced jalapenos
  • Lime
  • Tajin spice

Directions:

1.) Start by rimming a glass with some Tajin spice. I took a chunk of pineapple and rubbed it along the rim then dipped it into a plate of the spice.

2.) Fill the glass with some fresh pineapple, sliced jalapenos and ice.

3.) Add some pineapple juice, juice of some lime, tequila and top with Topo Chico.

Enjoy!!!!
