Italian Soda Bar

February 1, 2013 in Book Club, Cooking, Parties - 15 Comments

I hosted book club last weekend, and to go along with dinner, I set up an Italian soda bar.

We read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which has nothing to do with Italy, but you never really need an excuse to have Italian sodas, right?

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I stuck with pink and red accents.

Since there were only eight of us I limited the flavors to strawberry and peach.

I wasn’t 100% sure the Italian sodas would actually taste good even though they looked good, but they were surprisingly delicious.

And of course, there is always occasion for monster cookies as well.

UPDATE: I received so many requests for the Italian Soda Bar instructions that I offered it as a free printable here. Enjoy!

    SO yummy! I keep looking for the "like" button on your blog. Is there a way to do that on blogs (really, I'm curious, and of all people, you would know)? I just want to like all your posts.

    Is there a way to print the picture of your instructions? Also by cream like heavy whipping cream?

    Amy – Yes, heavy whipping cream is perfect. If you email me at tanner.lindsey[at], I'll send you the printable with the instructions.
