Ranch Water is So Trendy Right Now
What a unique name, right? Ranch Water. And it’s exactly what you’re thinking of: Texas ranchers. You see, in the dry, warm fields of west Texas, ranchers would carry around bottles of Topo Chico, a Mexican sparkling water with an almost spicy effervescence from a company that’s been around more than 100 years, and by the end of the day it was time to chug a few inches from the top of the bottle and top it off with a bit of tequila and a splash of lime juice. There are many theories about the actual origin of this cocktail’s name, with a bar and hotel claiming it as their own, but the important thing is that this has become a very popular drink to order because of the simplicity and how refreshing it can be. You can try one by walking up to the bar at Farmer’s Gastropub and asking for a Ranch Water. It’s an off-the-menu item but the bartenders there have your back. Here’s our take on the simply delicious Ranch Water.
