Italian Sodas

Jason & Nicole

My son, Jason and his fiance, Nicole, are getting married in two, count them, two days! (Yes, I am a wee bit excited.)  Last night I did a taste test of this Italian Soda recipe. The raspberry cream is delicious. And big plus, these are easy to do as a serve yourself item. We’ll be serving them at the reception.

How To: Italian Sodas
By Our Best Bites


24-ounce clear cups
Straws (striped paper straws are super cute and fun)
Flavored Syrups (fruity ones are best for Italian sodas)
Ice (crushed or pebble ice)
Soda water/sparkling water/seltzer
Half and half


Measure 3 tablespoons (6 pumps) of syrup into the bottom of a 24-ounce cup. Fill the cup halfway with ice. Add sparkling water about 1-1 1/2″ from the top. Add a splash of half and half (about 1 tablespoon). Stir with a straw and serve! Feel free to mix and match flavors or add fresh fruit garnishes like cherries, strawberries, or lime or lemon wedges.
