For those of you holding on to the whole "get healthy this year" thing, good for you. Here's something to help: Jalisco Norte's four Ranch Water options. For the less Texany Texans out there, a Ranch Water is about as Texan a cocktail as you can get: tequila, lime and Topo. Pretty easy.
Jalisco Norte offers us four Ranch Water takes. Our favorite, the Early Riser, brings together the traditional elements and adds a touch of tamarind-hibiscus to give it a beautiful color and a fresh flavor. Even better, since Topo Chico is, like, the thing right now, you look cool holding the bottle it's served in. Basically, it's just the thing to get us through these weird 60-degrees-in-January days and not ruin our resolutions ... yet.
Early Riser ($10): Casamigos Blanco Tequila, tamarind-hibiscus, lime juice, Topo Chico
