How To: Italian Sodas

  • Author: Our Best Bites


Perfect for a party (and so much easier to pull off than you might think!)! Your guests (or…just you) will love mixing and matching Italian Sodas.


  • 24-ounce clear cups
  • Straws (striped paper straws are super cute and fun)
  • Flavored Syrups (fruity ones are best for Italian sodas)
  • Ice (crushed or pebble ice)
  • Soda water/sparkling water/seltzer
  • Half and half


  1. Measure 3 tablespoons (6 pumps) of syrup into the bottom of a 24-ounce cup.
  2. Fill the cup halfway with ice.
  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!



  • Feel free to mix and match flavors or add fresh fruit garnishes like cherries, strawberries, or lime or lemon wedges.
