Mexico’s first official soft drink, founded in the 1950s and a bestseller in Mexico and USA, is now available for Australians.
Its flavour options are mandarin, tamarind and mango, all-natural ingredients (Jarritos uses cane sugar and its flavours are distilled from real fruit trees grown on Mexican farmland) and distinctive glass bottle.
Jarritos means ‘little jugs’, named after the long-standing cultural tradition (dating back to the 1920s) of aguas frescas – flavouring water with fruit and serving it in clay jugs to jeep it cool during the long, hot Mexican summers.
Australians can now experience their own version of this very special, international cultural tradition, with the drink now available for home-delivery via Mexican take-away giants Mad Mex, and Guzman y Gomez, and online orders through Dan Murphys.
Local neighbourhood Mexican restaurants Rosa Cienfuegos and Bad Hombres (who have launched a weekly ‘Jarritos & Tacitos” Deal) are on board, as are IGA and independent grocers and specialty stores.
