The oldest soft drink was created in the early 1900s by Arturo Mundet who produced a delicious apple cider beverage called Sidral Mundet. It was until the mid 1900s that Penafiel, Jarritos and Sangria Senorial , three of today’s most popular Mexican soft drinks were first produced.Popular Mexican Beverages Brands
