One of my favorite drinks: Italian Cream Soda. It’s the perfect holiday drink, party drink, or refreshing summer drink! Mix and match flavorings for endless possibilities. 

A glass of homemade Italian Cream Soda.

This has to be one of the easiest drinks to make. It’s also the easiest drink to devour. Note: I don’t drink alcohol so this drink is as close to “partying” as it gets! Haha!

This drink fits the bill for a party though: fast, easy, delicious, CUSTOMIZABLE. (That last one being a big winner).

Italian Cream Soda Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • Club soda – use cold club soda.
  • Flavored syrup – I use the Torani brand (you can find these flavored syrups in the coffee isle of your grocery store). I used raspberry and vanilla flavored syrups.
  • Heavy cream – if you prefer a lighter option you can use half and half.
  • Optional: top with additional whipped cream. If you choose to go this route, reduce the amount of heavy cream added to the drink itself.

How to make Italian Cream Soda

Fill drinking glasses half full of ice.

Then add 1/2 cup of cold club soda to each glass.

Pour 1/4 cup of flavored syrup into each glass.

Two glass cups full of ice, club soda, and raspberry syrup flavoring.

Add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to each glass.

When ready to drink, stir with a spoon to fully incorporate the heavy cream.

If you want to elevate this drink you can add a dollop of whipped cream to the top of the glass followed by a maraschino cherry. If you add the whipped cream, reduce the amount of heavy cream that’s poured into the glass by half.
