Italian Cream Soda




 Italian Cream Soda

One of my favorite warm weather treats is Italian Cream Soda.  It’s wonderful for those days when it’s too hot to eat your dessert.  However, I rarely feel like dishing out 5 bucks to get one – especially when it’s so simple to make at home.  You just need a couple of ingredients.  I’ll be honest, I don’t really measure the ingredients when I make these.  Instead, I just sort of mix until it tastes right.  Right now my favorite flavor is caramel.  I use two tablespoons caramel flavoring and one tablespoon vanilla. Nick prefers a pina colada flavor.

Here’s what you need:

  • Ice
  • Club Soda (about a half cup)
  • Torani flavor syrups (for Nick’s I used pina colada cocktail mix with a little vanilla syrup): caramel, vanilla, strawberry, and raspberry are my faves
  • Half and Half
  • Fruit (for garnish)
  • Whipped topping (optional)

To make: place a few ice cubes in a small glass, pour club soda over ice until about half-full.  Add syrups and stir. Pour a little half and half over the top.  Don’t stir it in right away for a marble look.  Garnish with fruit or top with whipped cream. Easy peasy.

Happy Tuesday!
