We can’t wait to show you how to make healthy Grapefruit Ranchwater, but first, let me share the story behind our low-carb ranchwater recipe.

Low-Carb Cocktails

I’m in my mid-fifties now and haven’t imbibed low-carb cocktails or other any alcohol for decades because I have the MTHFR mutation.

Pantry Mixology

But guess what? The Pantry Boys are all grown up and over twenty-one! They’re incredibly creative when it comes to cooking, bartending, and mixology.

What is Ranchwater?

If you’re wondering, what is ranch water, we’re here to help.

Ranch Water is a Texas-style tequila highball drink made with citrus and Topo Chico sparkling water.

What is the Best Tequila?

Wondering what’s the best tequila for ranchwater?

In our recipe we use rosa tequila –the Codijo brand is our favorite, but you can use any type of tequila in this ranch water recipe.

Grapefruit Ranchwater

Our Grapefruit Ranchwater is a light, bubbly version of the classic margarita.

While ranchwater is a delicious summer drink, it’s so good we plan on making it all year round.

Ranchwater Recipe

Our Grapefruit Ranchwater Recipe is inspired by the new flavor release from LMNT.

Baby Pantry says that grapefruit LMNT is his favorite new flavor because it’s so tasty, and goes down so smooth.

Grapefruity Cocktail

Along those lines, right when the grapefruit LMNT electrolytes arrived, Baby Pantry took one look and declared we had to make some sort of grapfruity cocktail.

Let’s just say I was all in.

Paloma Recipe

He toyed with the idea of a healthy paloma recipe, which is made with tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit soda.

Finally he landed on this grapefruit ranch water hard cocktail.

Summer Drink

We up the flavor game of this refreshing summer drink by swapping out lime juice for grapefruit electrolytes.

You can also make lime ranch water, and orange or raspberry work really well too.

LMNT Elemental Labs Variety Pack

The Best Electrolyte Ranchwater

Here’s why our LMNT electrolyte cocktail rules:

  • Save Time –no juicing citrus
  • Up Your Flavor Game –approved by Pantry Brothers
  • Perfect Hydration –LMNT salt-based, sugar-free electrolyte

Detox Retox Ranchwater

We love this detox-retox ranchwater. Using an electrolyte in your cocktail keeps you hydrated and properly detoxing while you’re drinking alcohol.

As I like to say, life is all about balance!

Ranchwater Drink

As you can imagine, the boys like to keep things healthy. That’s why this homemade ranchwater recipe is low-carb and hydrating.

It’s also easy to make because we love keeping things simple around here.

Ranchwater Cocktail

Sometimes I enjoy making fresh lemon or lime juice for our cocktails and mocktails, but other times I just want to rip open a packet of LMNT electrolytes and hydrate quickly.

That’s another thing I love about this healthy cocktail –you don’t need to squeeze fresh lime juice for it.
