Ingredients

For the Berry Syrup:

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar can go up to 1 cup if you like it sweeter and want it to store longer

  • 1/2 cup sparkling water or club soda
  • 1-2 tablespoons whipping cream

Instructions

To make the syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine raspberries, sugar, and water over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, and let boil for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer. (You can use the leftover fruit pulp over ice cream or pancakes!)

To make the drink:

  2. Add the syrup, then club soda.
  3. Pour in whipping cream to top it off. Admire the beauty!
  4. Stir before drinking to combine.

Recipe Notes

Change it Up:
Substitute strawberries or blackberries for the fruit syrup.
Instead of making a syrup, use a pre-purchased syrup (such as Torani brand).
Dress it Up:
Add a squirt of whipped cream and a couple of fresh berries on top to impress!
Dress it Down:
Not into cream? Leave it out completely for a simple Italian soda (sans cream).
