If you’ve had an Italian Cream Soda then you already know how delicious they are, if you haven’t you are in for a REAL treat!
Fresh fruit elevates this drink to a whole new level!
This is my new favorite SUMMER DRINK and I couldn’t wait to share it with you,
it’s pretty and pink and the flavor is slightly sweet, a little creamy and refreshing all at the same time and of course it has whipped cream and a cherry on top, as all good drinks have.
I recently posted how to make Cherry Syrup Recipe
It only takes a couple of minutes to make and believe me it tastes so great you wouldn’t even think of buying some artificially flavored cherry flavored syrup. As I’m thinking of it now, I may even freeze a batch or two so I can enjoy it all year long.
Italian cream sodas like old fashioned fountain drinks with fruity flavors and fun updated varieties.
So, after you make the cherry syrup, gather up some glasses with ice, heavy cream, sparkling water, whipped cream and some cherries for the top.
In minutes you will have this pretty and delicious drink, be sure to have plenty of the ingredients….I’ve been making these for DAYS!
I look forward to cherry season every year.
I will be sharing more cherry recipes soon!

Oh my gosh does this look refreshing, and I think I would be happy slurping up that cherry syrup all by itself!

This is so fun. I want one!
This looks so yummy I can’t wait to try it.
What do I do with the heavy cream or milk?
From the picture it looks like I add it to the cherry syrup and water.
In what proportions?
Oops I forgot that part…silly me. Add the heavy cream/milk after the cherry syrup and then fill the glass with the sparkling water then add the whipped cream 🙂
YUM! I’d love to be sipping on one of these on my back porch today 🙂
