Ranch Water has long been a Texas staple and a healthier alternative to the classic margarita — a sugary mix is swapped for crisp Topo Chico. Now, a new West Texas business called Lone River Beverage Company is making it a lot easier to enjoy the cocktail with a hard seltzer version in a can.

“We’ve been drinking Ranch Water on our family’s ranch in Far West Texas for as long as I can remember,” says founder and CEO Katie Beal Brown. “We canned this drink to celebrate the roots of the legend and our own heritage as a family who settled here generations ago. In thinking about the hard-working people of West Texas, we knew we wanted to create something that is approachable in both taste, price point, and availability.”

Only 80 calories, and made with 100-percent agave and natural lime juice, the new Lone River Ranch Water makes it incredibly easy to whip up the cocktail at home. “When I think of people from West Texas, I think of no frills, get-the-job-done kind of people,” says Brown. “I think that’s also what Lone River Ranch Water represents — it’s a no frills, get-the-job-done kind of drink.”

Later this summer, the brand’s plan is also to expand their Ranch Water offerings, with a spicy version and an option with a touch red grapefruit.

Currently, you can find six packs of the new canned drink at places like Whole Foods, Specs, Total Wine & More, etc. Happy drinking!
