Before I could drive or have a job, I used to go to the city swimming pool every afternoon during the summer. Those were the days: sun, chlorine, not a care in the world. Those were also days before I knew the glory of coffee. I used to order Italian sodas and felt pretty cool with my plastic cup topped with mounds of whipped cream.
Regardless if I have been forced to grow up or not, Italian sodas are still delicious. This version uses a super simple homemade raspberry syrup, but there are a ton of flavored syrups for sale in stores now. Hope you enjoy!
