My first Italian soda was in Stone Mountain, Georgia. I was 11 and I have been addicted ever since. I consider it part of my daily water intake, since hey there is water in it, even if it is carbonated. (I am just pretending the syrup is not there). They are great for parties, just set out a bunch of different syrups and bottles of carbonated water (my favorite are Perrier bottles, but I am a snobby Francophile like that).
Ingredients: (Per glass)
1.5 oz (a shot) of flavored syrup
16 oz carbonated water (a normal glass)
*Tip put the syrup in first so it mixes well
*My favorite flavor is almond, try it! It is simply delicious and refreshing great for summer BBQ!
