This is one of my husband's favorite drinks to get at the coffee shop. You can make it at home. I don't care for them much but they are very popular!

  • 4 ounces half-and-half
  • 10 ounces club soda

This is the exact, authentic recipe. I have worked at a couple of different cafe's, as well as Johnny CArinos restaurant, and the only difference between the Carinos one is that we used to use Sprite instead of club soda. So, make it with Sprite if you prefer, but that isn't an Italian soda. It's flavored Sprite.

I used Jones Cream Soda instead of plain club soda, and vanilla syrup. It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Epic Fail!! Reading through the reviews I found someone mention this was the same recipe that Olive Garden uses... That explains a lot. Next time your at Olive Garden try one. Then go to Johnny Corino's and try one. You'll never want an Italian Cream Soda any place else. Well, guess I have to keep looking until I can make one at home like at Corino's
