The Story Behind The Rancharita

We have been all about the Ranch Water, but now we’re looking for an upgrade. Moreover, for many, ‘tequila’ is synonymous with the ‘Margarita’ so what better place to look for a little inspiration? This simple recipe takes the best parts of both major cocktails, and combines them to create what we like to call the “Rancharita.”

Far from basic, this lovely little drink plays on the sweet and zesty taste of PATRÓN Citrónge to curl our favorite flavors in PATRÓN Silver. When combined, the two produce a smooth drink that benefits from the burst of fresh lime juice, and sees a little sparkle from the addition of soda water. Read on to learn how to mix one up for yourself, and discover why it deserves a place at every gathering!


  • 2 ounces PATRÓN Silver
  • 1 ounces PATRÓN Citrónge
  • 1 ounces fresh lime juice
  • Soda water to top (roughly 3 ounces)
  • Garnish: lime wheel


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice and add tequila, PATRÓN Citrónge, and lime juice.
  2. Top with soda.
  3. Stir and serve with lime wheel garnish.
