Peaches 'n Cream and Huckleberry Italian Sodas

Italy holds special place in my heart. Some day, when I have the money and vacation time, I would love to visit Italy and experience it firsthand. For now, though, I find little ways to appreciate the vibrant Italian culture. For example, I studied the Italian language for 2 years during college, I'm a firm believer in pizza, I can't live without pasta, and Italian sodas are like crack to me. So my brother and I decided to take a trip to Italy without leaving our own backyard. Trust me, sipping an Italian soda on a Wednesday afternoon is the best mid-week therapy.


Peaches 'n Cream Italian Soda

Make it!

Add the ingredients to the cup in this order:

1/4 cup peach-flavored syrup (Torani is best)
1/2 cup of ice cubes
Fill the cup with club soda leaving 1" clearance
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream (I added 3 drops of red and 2 drops of yellow food coloring for a peach-colored cream)
Top with whipped cream and a straw
Use the straw to mix up the ingredients and enjoy!

Huckleberry Italian Soda

Make it!

1/4 cup huckleberry-flavored syrup (Torani is best)
1/2 cup of ice cubes
Fill the cup with club soda leaving 1" clearance
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream 
Top with whipped cream and a straw
Use the straw to mix up the ingredients and enjoy!

My brother and I agreed that we like the Peaches 'n Cream Italian Soda more than Huckleberry, but they are both delicious. They also look gorgeous before you mix them.

Buona giornata!
