1/5 Photos of French Sodas (Blueberry, Strawberry or Raspberry)
An Italian soda is a refreshing combination of flavored syrup and sparkling water mixed in a cup of ice. The addition of half-and-half turns an Italian soda into a cremosa/creamosa or French soda. Don't use milk because it will separate. If you've ever purchased either an Italian or French soda, you know how expensive they can be. Make your own!

- 2Strain over a bowl keeping the juice and discarding the fruit. Cool completely and refrigerate until ready to use.
- 3To make a French Soda: Fill a tall glass with crushed ice. Pour over 1/4 part of the berry syrup. Pour over with sparkling water. Add a splash of half-and-half (or to taste). Serve with as straw which is used to gently stir the mixture together.
