According to Zonzini, Cantaritos are inspired by the “traditional clay jars served in Mexico’s vibrant celebrations.” Jarritos is an authentic Mexican brand popular with Hispanic consumers. Zonzini went on to say, “Cantaritos Hard Sodas are made to Flavor Your Fiesta in refreshing, bold-tasting flavors…”Anheuser-Busch may be the world’s largest alcohol distributor, but it’s arguably “late to the game” when it comes to hard sodas. A-B Inbev is definitely not the first brewing company to release a line of alcoholic beverages using the branding of popular sodas. Molson Coors partnered with Coca-Cola to produce hard seltzers Topo Chico and Simply Spiked. Constellation Brands and Brown-Forman also partnered with Coca-Cola for new-to-market ready-to-drink cocktails Fresca Mixed and Coca-Cola and Jack Daniels (respectively). Boston Beer Company partnered with PepsiCo to produce Hard Mountain Dew. It’s a growing trend that’s bringing consumers boozy versions of their favorite sodas, seltzers, and juices. Other popular brands that will soon hit the market with alcoholic versions include Vita Coco and Captain Morgan, Pepsi’s Lipton Iced Tea, and Monster’s The Beast Unleashed.

Now, they’re unpalatable. This is often true. However, there are exceptions. Some drinks that appeal to kids end up being just as delicious when you’re all grown up. Jarritos is one of these drinks. They come in fun, bright reds, yellows, and greens. These scream — kids’ drink! Do you know what this colorful array also screams? Cocktails!
