Homemade Italian Cream Sodas are made three ways with fresh strawberry, orange, and lemon syrups. Finished off with cream to make a sweet, fizzy treat.
It's September already, I can't even believe it. This weekend my oldest son, Ethan, turned13 years old. I'm not old enough to have a teenager, am I? I'm posting this recipe especially for him because he LOVES Italian sodas. Two years ago we made these for his birthday party and all his friends loved them. We put out all of the syrups in squeeze bottles along with the other components and let the kids make their own. The kids thought it was such a cool idea and had fun creating their own sodas. Now, every year on his birthday he requests these with his birthday dinner. His favorite is orange, but all the flavors are delicious!
Homemade Italian Cream Sodas
Italian cream sodas are really easy to make at home. I like making my own syrups, but you can also buy different flavored syrups if you like. I usually will make the syrup in bulk and then store it in the fridge for whenever the kids are feeling like a fun treat. They are also great for parties and family get-togethers, people love mixing and matching the different flavors.
What's in Italian Cream Sodas?
- Simple Syrup

Three simple ingredients to make these delicious fizzy treats. They are so easy to make and taste so delicious!
How to make Italian Sodas at home
To make these Homemade Italian Cream Sodas, you start with ice in a tall glass. To the glass, you will add in your syrup or syrups of choice. Next, you will add club soda almost to the top of the glass and then lastly, you will top it off with cream. You can make these without cream if you are looking for a dairy-free option. I usually have them without cream and I love how refreshing they are! If you don't like your soda too sweet, you can add less syrup. If you like your soda extra creamy, feel free to add in a bit more cream!
Italian Soda Syrups
I love doing fruit-flavored syrups in the Summer. Strawberry, lemon, and orange are the kids' favorites, but there are so many different options you can do. We have tried raspberry, cherry and even vanilla before. The syrups are just made by making a simple syrup, which consists of equal parts of sugar and water. Then, you add in your flavoring, which in this case is either a combination of fruit juice and zest or just fruit. Combine all of these ingredients in a saucepan on your stovetop and boil them down to make a sweet, fruity syrup. Make sure you cool the syrups completely before using, otherwise they will melt your ice too fast when assembling them. Syrups should keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 month. I like to store mine in mason jars!Print
