Why Topo Chico Lime is a Must-Have On Your Bar Cart

Topo Chico Lime is the fizzy, refreshing seltzer water that seems to make any drink more delicious. Although many cocktail recipes rely on club soda or seltzer water for that added fizz, Topo Chico brings the drink to another level with its bubbliness and subtle lime flavor.

Is Topo Chico Lime Good For You?

Topo Chico was originally brought to the U.S. by Mexican immigrants, and at first was a thing of Mexican grocery stores.

Topo Chico Twist of Lime Sparkling Mineral Water is full of minerals, and as for nutrition facts, it has a 4% daily value of calcium in a serving size of one bottle.
