pouring cream into an Italian soda


Perfect for a party (and so much easier to pull off than you might think!) Perfect to make at home for one, or to serve a crowd.


  • Clear Cups with Lids, I prefer 20 oz
  • Straws
  • Flavored Syrups
  • Ice, preferably crushed or pebble style
  • Soda water/sparkling water/seltzer
  • Half and half or creamer


  1. Fill cup about half way with ice.
  2. Add several pumps of flavored syrup (start with 4-6 for a 20 oz cup)
  3. Add sparkling water about 1-1 1/2″ from the top.
  4. Add a splash of half and half (about 1 tablespoon).
  5. Stir with a straw and serve!



  • Berry flavored syrups work the best, other flavors are fun for mixing and matching.
  • Coffee creamer also works as a great cream option.
  • In place of sparkling water, you can use lightly flavored options like LaCroix, or even Fresca, Sprite, or Ginger Ale.
  • feel free to use Feel free to mix and match flavors or add fresh fruit garnishes like cherries, strawberries, or lime or lemon wedges.
