Mint Flavored Italian Soda
This mint flavored Italian soda has turned into my favorite non alcoholic drink this summer.
Italian sodas have been very popular lately and I have been getting them from a local cafe I often go to. Too bad they charge for refills. They have a lot of different flavors like strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, peach, mango and mint. When I found out that I can make it at home, I decided to give it a try.
Making Italian soda turned to be pretty simple. You only need two ingredients regular or sugar free syrup and soda water. Although you can try making the syrup, I decided to get it at the store. I got a raspberry and mint syrups, and really enjoyed the freshness of the mint soda.
I also saw a recipe, where some cream was added to a mint soda and got curious about it. (I haven’t tried it yet).
Here is what you need to make mint flavored Italian soda:
a glass full of ice
club soda (sparkling water, I used Perrier)
Add 2 tbsp fruit syrup to a glass full of ice and top with soda water. Give it a stir, try it and add more syrup if needed.
- glass full of ice
- 2 tbsp sugar free fruit syrup — (I used mint syrup)
- 1 1/2 cup soda water — (sparkling water)
Fill a large glass with ice.
Add fruit (mint) syrup.
Top with soda water.
