Italian Cream Soda

It was a busy weekend at our house, we had so many projects going on I couldn't keep track of them all! A  headboard was being made, car panels were being upholstered and I was quilting and cooking. About 2:00 we all ended up in the kitchen at the same time for refreshments! I love making these in the summer but they also work great on a heavy project day, Italian Cream Sodas, I call them my "comfort drink." How cute would these be for Valentine's Day?
Ingredients:
3/4 c sparkling water (I use Perrier water)
2 T flavored syrup per drink (my favorite is Torani)
1/2 cup half-n-half (or milk if you want)
ice cubes
whipped cream (optional but necessary in this house!)
Directions:
This is really simple. Place 2 T flavored syrup in a glass, we used raspberry. Add the sparkling water, then the half-n-half, then about 3-4 ice cubes or some crushed ice. I usually stir it gently at this point. Add whipped cream on top and place your straw in the glass! That's it, enjoy your awesome little refreshments!

* If you like Italian sodas, just leave out the half-n-half.

Love and peace,
