Why You’ll Love This Hard Cream Soda
- Quick & Easy – this drink is super easy to make and won’t take more than a few minutes.
- Fun Cocktail – This alcoholic spin on Italian Cream Soda makes it a fun cocktail for parties and special occasions. (You can make a non-alcoholic version too, if you prefer.)
- Creamy & Dreamy – Need I say more? Using heavy cream in the drink and topping it with whipped makes it perfectly sweet and creamy.
What is Italian Cream Soda?
This classic drink is a combination of carbonated water, flavored syrups, and cream. Simple but delicious! Mixing your own drink with your preferred flavor makes it taste much fresher than pre-made soda drinks, and the cream just makes it a little more dessert-like.
For this recipe, I substituted liqueur in place of the syrup to make it a cocktail. I have to admit, it turned out pretty great!
- Club Soda
- Raspberry Liqueur – I prefer to use Chambord.
- Heavy Cream
- Whipped Cream & Raspberries – top it off with some garnish!
How to Make (Alcoholic) Italian Cream Soda
This is such a quick recipe. Once you’ve got your ingredients, you’re half-way there!
- Pour raspberry liqueur into the glass, then top with club soda.
- Add in the heavy cream (stir it in just before drinking).
- Top it off with the whipped cream and raspberries!
That’s it, it’s ready to serve!
Make it Non-Alcoholic
While this Italian cream soda recipe isn’t kid friendly at first, it is super easy to make a non-alcoholic version too. All you have to do is use a regular raspberry syrup instead of the liqueur and you’re good to go! Kids will definitely love this classic too, but the adult versions are a little more fun for the rest of us.
Even better, you can switch out the syrups to make any soda flavor you want. Make lime, lemon, orange, strawberry, or anything you can think of!
