San Antonio-based Epic Western's new La Paloma features grapefruit and tequila.
San Antonio's Epic Western is expanding its canned cocktail line with two more twists on classic tequila-based tipples, its La Paloma and Chispa Rita.

Last summer, the startup venture dove into the already crowded ready-to-drink cocktail market with a canned ranch water cocktail, a beverage traditionally made with fizzy water, lime and Tequila.

The company's new La Paloma is blends super-premium tequila with grapefruit, while its Chispa Rita is Epic Western’s version of a skinny margarita. Both weigh in at a hefty 8% ABV.

Both new sippers began showing up at liquor stores, sports arenas, golf clubs and outdoor patio bars March 1. They're now for retail in four-packs of 12-ounce slim cans.
