Learn how to make Italian Soda with carbonated water and fresh homemade raspberry syrup! You can also turn this refreshing drink into a cremosa by adding a splash of cream!
Quench your thirst with a homemade Italian soda! Ahhhh, sooo refreshing, TASTY, and a great way to use the raspberry syrup that I shared last week! Not only is this a fun way to drink more water, but you can also adjust the sweetness to your preference!
I LOVE having that flexibility!
I’ve found that I just can’t drink overly sweet beverages of any type! Even sugary cocktails cause me to make not so pretty faces!
Making your own soda is super easy and the price is right! To purchase an authentic Italian drink you’ll spend at least 4 bucks, which might be ok if it’s just for yourself, but it can really add up if you purchase drinks for the whole family!
I bought a liter of club soda for 89 cents! The syrup was about $5 to make and it goes a long way!
Italian Soda With Cream
You also NEED to try a cremosa! This decadent variation of an Italian soda sounds a little strange, but trust me when I tell you that it’s amazing!
Treat yourself and use full-fat cream unless you are intolerant to milk products of course! You’ll enjoy the richness when taking a sip!
Keep in mind that the amounts of each ingredient listed in the recipe is a range. I encourage you to adjust the amounts listed to your personal taste. That means you’ll be enjoying several drinks so that you’ll get it just right!
