Growing up, Italian sodas were my favorite thing to get during the summer. There was a small coffee shop in the library I would go to with my mom, and if I was good, I’d always get an Italian soda when we left.
Now I’m bringing that fond childhood experience home for you and your kiddos to enjoy!
Homemade Italian sodas are a snap to make and can be any flavor you want! Simply combine half and half, flavored syrup and sparkling water in a glass filled with ice. It’s a fun drink to cool you down on those hot days and it’s even more fun to watch your kids’ imaginations go wild! Ever thought about a cherry and blackberry combination? Or maybe cherry and lime? Leave it up to them!
Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour the syrup and half & half into the glass. Top with sparkling water and stir to combine. Serve cold.
