How To Make An Italian Soda | Food Theory Thursday


One of Culinary Crafts's favorite summer beverages is an Italian Soda!  While many people may be thinking, hey, how to you 'make' an Italian soda?  Don't you just go buy one from a fancy import store?  Well, no, I'm talking about a TRUE Italian Soda made with delicious Italian flavored syrup, a splash of cream, and soda - creating a fabulous and refreshing summer treat!  It really is so easy to make one of these beautiful drinks.  As you can see above, you simply fill any tall glass about 2/3 of the way with ice (we prefer our frosted zombie glass if we really want to go all out), then you add the flavored syrup.  Not too much because it will be too sweet, so fill about 1/4 of the glass with the syrup or 1/3 if you'd like a little more flavoring.  Next, you fill the glass with cream (like Half and Half) til the glass is about 2/3 full, then finish by filling the glass the rest of the way with club soda (or sprite, if you'd like it sweeter).  Voila!  An Italian Soda is made - and how tasty they are!  Hopefully you love these sodas as much as we do!  Happy creating everyone!
