Cocktail Friday — Raspberry Italian Cream Sodas

I’ve still got a few more weeks of nonalcoholic drinks, so today I’m sharing a yummy and caffeine free drink that your whole family can enjoy!!


My Mother In Law introduced my family to these sodas after working for many years at a ski resort.  She loved them and wanted to make them at home, so she’s got a huge stockpile of different flavored syrups at her house — all the grandkids LOVE it!!  One of the first things they do when they get to grandma’s, is ask if they can make Italian Sodas.


I’d never made one myself, so I asked her to share the recipe.  She says her favorite flavor is raspberry, but you can totally sub in any flavored syrup.


(You can buy flavored syrups online HERE)



    1 regular sized shot glass full of raspberry drink syrup

    cold club soda

    splash of half and half

    crushed ice

    whipped cream and cherry for garnish


    Fill a large glass with crushed ice.  Add shot of raspberry drink syrup, and top off with club soda, leaving a little bit of room at the top of the glass.  Add a splash of half and half, and mix with a straw.  Top with whipped cream and cherry and serve.

These are so yummy and fun for any occasion — and Torani has ALL kinds of crazy syrup flavors on their website.

I hope you enjoy and have a happy weekend!!
