Italian Soda

4 Reviews

Ppppffffff (that’s me trying to hold back a laugh). Can you see my running shoes? LOL! Yup, I had just worked out, done yoga, and made a yummy raspberry Italian Soda. Awesome.

Listen, if you have kids, you must make a fun drink on Valentines Day. I found one on Pinterest I want to try too, but I had the stuff and know how for this delicious concoction so I started there. My little one and her friend were full of giggles drinking their little versions of this “love potion”. Gosh, I love kids. Aren’t they just the best?

This drink is super yum to add a swirl of heavy cream to, but I was out, so I opted to go without and instead I added a dollop of whipped cream to the top. It still ended up mixing in a bit, and it was AMAZING. So bubbly and I love the raspberry flavor. Feel free to use any flavor btw.

  • This looks delicious and love the name too. 🙂 Would I find Torani Syrup in the alchohol section of a grocery store?

  • I absolutely LOOOOVVE Italian Sodas! Frequented Starbucks enough to get them that I finally started making them on my own. Well that and they no longer have the almond syrup available. So, I make my favorite almond Italian soda at home…and have my kids hooked!
