Italian cream sodas have been deliciously popular over the past little while–and not only are they yummy to drink, they are really easy to make! I made them quite a bit this summer–at girls camp for our church, at our family trip to Lake Powell, and most recently we made them for our Back to School dinner.

Here’s what you need to make your own Italian Cream Sodas:

I bought these bottles of flavored syrup at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City. They were only about $4.99 for nearly 26 ounces of syrup–which is one of the best prices I found. They have tons of different flavors; our favorites were raspberry, peach, strawberry, vanilla, orange and watermelon.

I made a cute little printable to set up at the table so people know how to make their own Italian sodas! These are fun to put in a colorful frame for everyone to see. :) I made both a simplified version and a more detailed version:

As you can see, the instructions are very simple. And honestly, you can add the syrup, cream and club soda in any order you want, but it’s best to start with the ice.

Fill your cup halfway full of ice.

Add one ounce of flavored syrup. (This is according to your taste. Sometimes I added up to 2 ounces of syrup depending on the flavoring.) It’s also yummy to mix flavors! For example, you could do part raspberry and part peach for a delicious combo. :)

Fill the cup the rest of the way with club soda.

Then you can add one ounce of half and half. This is optional but it gives it a nice creamy taste!

Be sure to stir it all up together to blend all of the flavors before you take a sip! These drinks are so pretty to look at and they taste delightful! Our favorite flavor combinations were raspberry peach, strawberry peach, orange and cream, strawberry vanilla, watermelon strawberry, etc.!

    This will be great to do at Girls camp this summer! Just wondering though what size of cups did you use? Any idea how many ounces your cup would hold? I am worrying about diluting it too much with soda if the cups are too big. Thanks!
