GET — On the App Store
I use clear cups because the soda is pretty and part of the fun is seeing your creation! I ordered these
-ounce cups with lids on Amazon
and they were perfect.
You will need straws to stir your soda and drink it! While paper straws are very adorable, I also had
clear plastic straws
on hand; I personally hate drinking out of the paper kind!
Put out a bowl of ice with some tongs out and you’re set in the ice department!
You can get Italian soda syrups at stores like Cost Plus World Market and Smart & Final.
Amazon also sells a Torani variety pack of six flavors
. I bought six flavors at Cost Plus so we’d have lots of flavor options.
Club soda is the best. Seltzer water works, too, but club soda has a bit more flavor that works nicely with the Italian soda. (Seltzer water = water with bubbles. Club soda = water with bubbles and some minerals and stuff.)
Half and half:
Some people top their Italian soda with whipped cream, but I personally
mixing half and half into the soda. It was deeeeeelicious.
