Italian cream sodas… I’d never heard of them until Austin and I traveled to Italy on our date-around-the-world tour. We’re not big soda drinkers, but we love these things! They’re a really fun treat for date nights when we’re not in the mood to bake a dessert. We’ve had fun mixing flavors, too, and sharing the wonder with our local friends.
flavored syrups (I’ve bought most of my syrups from the same Taobao shop. Here’s the link to the vanilla syrup; that page links to tons of other pages with different flavors.)
Directions and Notes:
1. Place 2-3 ice cubes in the bottom of a glass.
2. Pour half a can of soda water into the glass.
3. Add 2-3 Tablespoons of flavored syrup to taste. Some of our favorite syrup flavors for these sodas are peach, strawberry, vanilla, and mint. But the sky’s the limit!
4. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of cream and stir. Enjoy!
