New Fave Summer Cocktail: Ranch Water

see more by

At a Fourth of July party my friend Matt was busy mixing this tasty cocktail for our friends – the combo of cucumber, lime & jalapeno makes a refreshingly interesting medley- it quickly became my new fave Summer Cocktail: Ranch Water.

Ranch Water

What you need:

Fine Silver Tequila

Muddled Limes

Muddled Jalapeno (de-seeded)


Splash of Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice


Ready, Set, Cocktail!

Put muddled limes & jalapeno in a shaker add tequila and ice.  Shake vigorously and pour into a tall glass, add soda until almost full and top with a splash of ruby red grapefruit juice.  Stir and garnish with a slice of cucumber and lime.

(I can’t handle anything too spicy and so I asked him to go light on the jalapeno.  I did notice the longer it sat it gradually got a little spicier so I just refreshed with a little more soda water & juice- so tasty!  If you’re worried about spice you can always remove the white membrane of the jalapeno as well)
