How To Make Italian Soda

Owner of Clawhammer Supply
How to make Italian Soda Here at Clawhammer Supply, nothing goes to waste! We had some leftover strawberry syrup from our Strawberry Lemon Saison brew day & we decided to make some Italian Sodas. This non-alcoholic beverage is fun for the whole family and a perfect way to cool off on a hot summer’s day!

How does it taste? 

The type of fruit and flavorless beverage you used will ultimately determine how your Italian Soda tastes! We found our strawberry Italian soda to be quite delicious. However, adding too much whipped cream to the top may make for a challenging drinking experience. We recommend trying this recipe with different fruit combinations and encourage you to share your concoctions in the comment section!
