Italian Soda

My husband and I learned to make these sodas at the restaurant where we met.  It was a fun little wrap place, and we both worked there making gourmet food and whipping up drinks for college kids.  I fell in love with him with an italian soda in hand, and I still feel a little giddy every time I sip one.  I like to keep four or five syrups on hand for an impromptu party because, really, sipping one of these sodas is a party all by itself.  Guests are optional.

Fruit syrups work best for these sodas and 0 calorie sparkling waters.  Pour the syrup first.  You want to use a ratio of 1 part syrup to 5 parts water. Leave room at the top of the cup for the froth from the cream.

You can find flavored syrups online at orsongygi.com or at specialty grocery stores.  At $5 a bottle, you can buy a few!
