Make this easy Italian classic drink at home!
I have always been fascinated with Italian sodas. They just seem so fancy that I as convinced they were hard to make and expensive. After a trip to World Market with my momma were we came home with all the ingredients, I learned otherwise. Not only was this peach Italian cream soda easy to make, it was so so good. Like I may have drank one of these a day for a week. [just maybe]
I’m not sure if Italian sodas are popular in Italy but I’d totally be willing to travel over there and find out. Unlike my hubby, I haven’t traveled much out of the United States. I’ve gone to Mexico with friends and family a few times [we live about 4 hours from the border] and I’ve seen Canada from northern Michigan. Other then that, I’ve only traveled within the United States.
I keep telling Ryon we need to go over seas and sight see. Or take a cruise. I think it would be super fun to take a Disney cruise with the kids. He disagrees and says he was on a boat for 6 plus years that he doesn’t want to be one another one.
I, of course, think that is totally unfair so I keep bringing up the idea every so often. He will come around to the idea of traveling outside the country eventually.
For now, I must live through Italian food and drinks until I can convince him to take us on a family vacation to Italy. Maybe when the kids are older. Or maybe without the kids. Although I know they would love to go. Ryley is my little Italian girl who loves her pasta and pizza.
I would love to try authentic Italian food with her. And maybe take a pasta cooking class or something fun. See? I’ve already got the trip planned!
