Italian soda is an easy drink that’s fun and impressive! Mix syrup, club soda and cream for a classic Italian cream soda.


  • 3/4 to 1 ounces* flavored syrup, like Torani (we used raspberry)
  • 8 ounces soda water
  • ½ ounce heavy cream** (optional)


  1. Add the syrup and soda water to an ice-filled glass and stir gently. If desired, top with the cream.
  2. Serve immediately.


*1 ounce syrup makes a very sweet drink, but it’s more balanced with cream. If serving without cream we recommend starting with ¾ ounce and taste testing. To convert to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons.
