Summer Sipping-Italian Cream Soda

italian cream soda 1

A backyard summer barbecue is the perfect place to sip on a refreshingly fizzy homemade soda. Although this fruity drink is called Italian cream soda, it was originally created in the United States, flavored with well-known Italian syrups.  This recipe gives you the option to make your own syrups from scratch, which provides endless flavor possibilities for a quick and easy summer drink.italian cream soda 6
