Tequila or Not Tequila? That’s The Ranch Water Question!
Traditionally, Ranch Water is made using tequila, seltzer like Topo Chico, and lime. That’s it. Sprucing it up with some delicious, fresh low FODMAP friendly fruit like pineapple and a hint of mint adds a super tropical twist on an already delicious favorite. But, if you’re following a low FODMAP diet, tequila is likely out of the question for you.
That’s where Ritual Zero Proof Tequila Alternative comes in! With a tropical yet earthy flavor that packs a little punch of heat, you can add it to any of your favorite tequila cocktails, like Ranch Water, to instantly enjoy cocktail flavor without the booze. I personally love the taste of Ritual’s tequila alternative so much. It has a little hint of spice which makes it the perfect partner for pineapple!
