Italian Cream Soda Recipe

Italian Cream Soda is a refreshing carbonated drink, often flavoured with vanilla. Usually a mixture of club soda/ carbonated water and Half & Half, combined with vanilla and fruit syrup. Ratios of the ingredients vary but it usually tastes like sweetened flavoured milk. These drinks are tasty but overpriced at restaurants that you have to think before ordering one. This drink can be made at home for a fraction of the price.
