Good food, tasty drinks and great company are three must-haves for any party. Everyone has their favorite party treats and hosting activities, and it’s especially to get the kids involved too! A DIY Italian Soda station is always a hit for adults and kids alike! We’ve made Italian sodas for birthday parties, holidays and even camping trips! Easily make these tasty drinks and customize your beverage with your favorite flavored syrup.
All you need to make homemade Italian sodas are a few ingredients you may already have in your kitchen.
Italian Soda Ingredients
- carbonated water, lemon lime soda or ginger ale
- half and half
- flavored syrups
- whipped cream
Start by filling your glass halfway with carbonated water or sparkling soda. Add a few ice cubes to make your drink cold. Pour in a splash of half and half, followed by a few pumps (or spoonfuls) of flavored syrup. Top with whipped cream!
The best syrups to use for Italian sodas include fruity flavors such as raspberry, peach, huckleberry or mango. Vanilla and almond syrups are tasty too. Any flavor that seems like it would be good with the carbonated water or sparkling soda flavor is worth trying! The half and half makes a Italian soda taste creamy, but this can be left out if you want your soda to taste more fizzy.
Italian sodas are a fun addition to a dinner party or birthday celebration. You can even set up a cute Italian soda station and allow guests to make their own drinks. People enjoy mixing up their own flavors, trying out syrup combinations and of course spraying on the whipped cream!
Italian sodas are a great kid-friendly beverage to enjoy anytime of the year! We’ve even made Italian sodas on camping trips, which are so refreshing on a hot summer day! Which flavors would you mix into an Italian soda?
