Topo Chico Is Sending 2 Hard Seltzer Fans To Mexico In Honor Of Cinco De Mayo

Dreaming of Puebla, Mexico this Cinco de Mayo to see where the holiday began? Topo Chico Hard Seltzer will make that a reality for two people who want to explore the country through its food and traditions. For those who don't win the trip, the brand is helping people bring a taste of Mexico into their homes with recipes from chef and author Rick Martínez that pair well with the company's beverages. 

According to Martínez, the dishes that are ideal for Cinco de Mayo entertaining are pollo al pastor and fried esquites. The first is best paired with Topo Chico Signature Margarita Hard Seltzer, while fried esquites taste especially good when eaten with Topo Chico Hard Seltzer Strawberry Guava. It's the chef's approach to food that appealed to the beverage brand. "Rick's Mexican cuisine brings out the flair in food that makes it stand out from the rest, creating the perfect pairing for Topo Chico Hard Seltzer's unique flavors," states Joy Ghosh, vice president of marketing for above premium flavor at Molson Coors Beverage Company, the parent company of Topo Chico. 

And while making delicious Mexican food at home is a great way to celebrate the victory of Mexico's army against the French, we're willing to bet the trip is what has hard seltzer fans most excited.

What is included in the culinary adventure?

Between May 2 and May 9, those who are 21 and older can enter online for a chance to win a $15,000 six-night culinary-focused trip to Mexico. The brand will take two winners to Puebla, Mexico, and Mexico City to experience a variety of events. Among these are taco sampling in different neighborhoods, such as San Rafael and La Condesa, a private hot air balloon tour of Teotihuacán pyramids, a private tour of Paso de Cortes accompanied by a traditional lunch, and much more. The trip will be evenly divided, with three nights in Mexico City and three nights in Puebla, Mexico.

Per a press release, Topo Chico Hard Seltzer worked with a Mexico-based travel company to prepare the itinerary to ensure that it would focus on the country's culinary and cultural traditions. It also made sure to highlight the city of Puebla, where Mexico's army defeated France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. In addition to Puebla's historical significance, it is also where chile poblano, mole poblano, and chiles en nogada were first created.
