Why I Love This Recipe

You know, I really adore this recipe because it’s so darn easy to make right in my own kitchen! It’s like bringing a piece of my favorite café home with me! My version of the classic strawberry Italian soda is all about that creamy, bubbly goodness with a burst of strawberry flavor. Plus, it saves me money making it myself rather than buying it at a café!

It’s perfect for anyone looking to whip up a simple Italian soda at home with minimal ingredients and in just 1 minute. To make it, simply add your strawberry syrup, sparkling water, and cream and mix, it’s that simple! You can also add a sprinkle of my Baking Strawberry Powder or drizzle of my Strawberry Reduction Sauce for an extra burst of strawberry. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll be hooked just like me!



  • Strawberry Syrup – you can use any type of strawberry syrup such as Torani syrups, or sugar free option, choose a sugar free syrup such as Choc Zero strawberry syrup.
  • Ice – cubed.
  • Carbonated Water – sparkling water, seltzer water, or Sodastream Carbonated Water can all be used for Italian Soda.
  • Heavy Cream – heavy cream or heavy whipping cream.  

Additional Flavors

The best part of this recipe is its versatility with additional flavors. You can customize it with any flavor you like, such as Watermelon, Peach, Pina Colada, Vanilla, Coconut, Pineapple, Orange, Raspberry, or Blackberry. These options allow you to tailor the Italian soda to your taste preferences, offering a refreshing variety of fruity and tropical flavors.

Frequently Asked Questions

What syrup works best?

For the best results, I recommend using the original Torani brand of strawberry syrup.

Can I substitute sparkling water with soda water or club soda?

Yes, you can substitute sparkling water with seltzer water in this recipe. However, I don't recommend using club soda as it contains salt, which can alter the flavor of the Italian soda.

Storage Tips

I recommend to consume the drink immediately after preparation as it may lose its carbonation over time, resulting in a flat beverage.
