Yep. You too can make your own Italian soda!

Sure, it’s not like solving a complex equation or walking a tight rope, but I’m still excited about it.

Italian sodas are yummy, and festive, and easy to make, and they make people happy.

Maybe that’s just the sugar high. But I digress.

They are a fun treat and we all need a fun treat every now and again. And again.

The ingredients to make an Italian soda are simple:

  • Ice
  • Club soda
  • Flavored syrup (I usual get *Torani
  • Half & Half
  • Whipping cream
  • And cups. Disposable or not disposable!
  • Oh, and STRAWS!

You can take it up a notch and add sprinkles or cherries. Or sprinkles AND cherries!

These are fun treats the kids are capable of making themselves. They are also a crowd pleaser. You can set-up an Italian Soda Drink Station at your next BBQ or serve them up at a that soccer team picnic… or family reunion! The possibilities are endless!

So… here is the recipe:

  • Fill the cup with ice about half way (or more if it’s really hot outside).
  • Pour in the club soda… fill to about 3/4 of the way. Or a touch more.
  • I recommend 4-6 ounces of syrup (6-8 *pumps), depending on your sweetness preference. I prefer mine less sweet.  
  • Pro top: It’s fun to mix syrups – especially different colors of syrups!
  • Add a splash (or a few) of Half & Half (SO YUM)
  • Top with whipping cream! The *dome lid is DOPE.
  • And maybe sprinkles, or a cherry (*Luxardo cherries are a bit spendy, but they are THE VERY BEST. Once you go Luxardo you never go back. You can quote me on that.)
  • You could also add crushed Oreos. But that might just be too extravagant 😉
  • And of course a straw. I really like *these straws. They are big and colorful.

And that is it you guys! Bring the fixings to a party… just keep the fixings on hand at home… and you have a quick treat ready in a pinch!
