My Mama's best entertaining tip? Set up a beverage station where folks can make their own drinks, so you don't have to play bartender all night.

Ranch water is a simple mix of tequila, sparkling water, and lime juice and is always a crowd-please. My pretty pomegranate version is a fruity, tangy twist on the classic. Serve this at your tailgate alongside another one of my favorite recipes, Corn-and-Smoked Sausage Nachos, or for a backyard barbecue with sticky-sweet Oven-Baked Baby Back Ribs.


  • 1/4 cup blanco tequila

  • 6 Tbsp. sparkling water (such as Topo Chico)

  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

  • 2 tsp. bottled pomegranate juice

  • Garnish: Lime wheel


  1. Fill a double old-fashioned glass with ice. Add blanco tequila, sparkling water, lime juice, and bottled pomegranate juice; stir to combine. Garnish with a lime wheel.
