When Southside Craft Soda Co-Founder, Andrew Anguiano, came up with the idea to start a soda company it was rooted in the history of his family's legacy in the area. You see for nearly 300 years, his ancestors cultivated the land around the World Heritage Site, Mission San Jose, creating unique flavors that sustained them. Growing their own ingredients and living off the adjacent San Antonio River, the fusion of Mexican and Texan (Mex-Tex) cuisine was born.
Of course, South Texas food could only be paired with refreshing beverages cooling them off during the constant heat of the region. Aguas frescas, raspas, tea, lemonade, punch and various blended cocktails (margaritas and such) got them through the work day and brought them together for family meals at night. You could say, they were their own beverage company.
