Italian Sodas

 Summer is such a fun time to have drinks that are out of the ordinary.

 The kids think anything with a straw is pretty awesome so when we made this one night for dessert, they were so excited.  Whip cream and a straw.  Life couldn't get much better than that, especially on a hot summer day.

This beauty can be made many different ways.  This is a our preferred version, especially the kids, and because all the ingredients can be found in pretty much every grocery store, including the flavorings (they just don't have a large variety).  We love to pick up different flavorings at World Market (this time it was Blackberry, Raspberry, and Blood Orange).

*this makes enough for one drink.

Sprite (or mineral water--my kids don't like that version so totally up to you)
1/4 cup half-n-half
2 tbsp flavoring
Whip Cream (the can kind works awesome)
Ice (we prefer crushed--like the Sonic kind)

1.  Fill your cup half way up with ice.  Pour in half-n-half and flavoring.  Slowly pour in Sprite (or mineral water) till it reaches the top, the Sprite will overflow if you pour it in too fast.  Top with whip cream and add a straw--just for fun.  Enjoy!
