The Perfect Texas Margarita

Cue Jimmy Buffett, waves rolling in, and a three-day sunburn you can't shake. All you need is the perfect cocktail. With the temperatures already in the triple digits, I set out to create the perfect drink. 


I paired Topo Chico of course with my favorite summer fruits to create a spin of the Texas famous "Ranch Water." If you haven't heard of Ranch Water yet, it is a mix of tequila, lime juice and Topo Chico another fabulous concoction. I advise that you put both on your summer to-do list. Make sure to salt & garnish your drinks & use only the freshest ingredients to achieve perfection. Also, I need your help with the name, Any suggestions?

Directions: Add all the liquid ingredients together, shake & pour into your salt-rimmed glasses. Serve & enjoy.
