Spicy Pineapple Ranch Water

This post contains affiliate links

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!!!!

This is the perfect Strawberry Lemonade Momosa if you are looking for a way to treat mom for Mother’s Day. Sweet strawberry lemonade is frozen into beautiful floral ice molds and topped off with champagne for the perfect mimosa for her on Mother’s Day or any spring brunch. It would also be a beautiful drink to serve at a bridal shower as well! Scroll down for my recipe and more Mother’s Day ideas from my friends at the Cozy Creative Collaborative.

Now on to The Perfect Strawberry Lemonade Momosa for Mother’s Day

I love a classic mimosa but have you ever had a strawberry lemonade mimosa? This is such a sweet and refreshing sip and the rose shaped ice cubes are so pretty! You will need these ice cube molds to make the roses. You can do any shape, and Amazon has several to choose from but I loved the roses for spring and Mother’s Day. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch. If you’re looking for Mother’s Day tea ideas, make sure you check out this post from last year to see our Mother’s Day tea with my DIY tea bags.

This can easily be made into a mocktail too with some non-alcoholic bubbles.

Here is my recipe

Ingredients:

  • Lemonade
  • Pureed strawberries (I used frozen strawberries but made sure they were thawed)
  • champagne
  • lemon zest (optional)
  • chopped basil (optional)

Directions:

1.) Start by preparing the mixture to fill your ice molds. In a mason jar I combined lemonade, a few spoonfuls of pureed strawberries and a pinch of chopped basil and mixed well. (You don’t have to add basil but I had some in my fridge and I love the flavor of strawberry and basil together).

2.) Sprinkle some lemon zest into the ice molds then fill each with the strawberry lemonade mixture. Save the leftover strawberry lemonade in a mason jar in the fridge.

3.) Cover the ice cube molds and freeze.

4.) When ready to serve, pop out an ice cube from the mold and place into a glass.
