The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Nectar Making

A feature that many Simmers wanted to return was the ability to make Nectar in the game! With The Sims 4 Horse Ranch, Sims are finally able to make, drink, and sell their own Nectar.

The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Nectar Tools

To start making Nectar, buy a §350 Rootin’ Fruit’n Nectar Maker from the Buy Catalog. It can be found in the Outdoor Activities Section.

For storage, try adding one or more of the Rancher’s Stackable Nectar Storage Racks for §300!

Creating Your First Batch of Nectar

After purchasing the necessary equipment, it is finally time to make Nectar! Click on the Nectar Maker and two options will appear: “Purchase Basic Ingredients” and “Craft Nectar”. After using the Nectar Machine a few times, a third option will appear that allows your Sim to clean the Nectar Maker.

Moonpetal Nectar

To learn the Moonpetal Nectar recipe, a Sim needs to order Moonpetal Nectar at a bar. Moonpetal Nectar gives Werewolves an “increased sense of calm”. But, drinking too much Moonpetal Nectar can also cause the opposite effect.

Plasma Nectar

Learning the Plasma Nectar recipe is simple! Order a Plasma Nectar at a bar to receive the recipe.

This Nectar helps Vampire Sims feel “happy and refreshed”. Lightly aged or more Plasma Nectars increase a Vampire’s refreshment.

Not a vampire? All other Sims should avoid drinking Plasma Nectar.

Valerian Nectar

To unlock the Valerian Nectar recipe, order a Valerian Nectar at any bar.

This recipe makes all Sims feel happy, but with an extra kick for Spellcasters! Lightly Aged or older Nectars will have an increased effect on Spellcasters.

Vitality Nectar

This nectar recipe can be found by searching Wild Grass! Ask the Mysterious Rancher for more information.

Aging Nectars

Want better Nectar? Or increased profits? Leaving Nectar bottles for long periods of time will help them age. Storing them in a basement or cellar will help Nectar age faster. Nectar Racks increase the speed significantly faster.

Missed Opportunity

Unfortunately, The Sims 4 Horse Ranch did not add Nectar to the Dine Out Menu! Lucky for us, Icemunmun stepped up for the challenge and added the beverages into the menu. You can pick up this mod on her website!


With this new mod, you can add The Sims 4: Horse Ranch’s Nectar to the Dine Out Menu!
