Orange Italian Soda Recipe

An Italian soda is a soft drink made from carbonated water and flavored syrup, offering a unique blend of flavors and a delightful fizzy experience.

This drink did not actually originate from Italy, but it was invented by Italian immigrants who created Torani syrup.

They flavored carbonated water with the syrup to create sodas, which they served at soda fountain shops. Adding cream to the soda made them Italian cream sodas. 

Instead of cream, our orange cream Italian soda recipe uses vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet to create a classic creamsicle flavor. It is a cross between an Italian soda and an ice cream float.

What is a Creamsicle

A Creamsicle is a brand name for a frozen dessert that has become synonymous with a certain flavor combination: creamy vanilla ice cream coated with a layer of tangy, sweet orange ice.

The distinctive flavor of this popular treat strikes a balance between the smooth, rich taste of vanilla ice cream and the bright, citrusy punch of orange.

The term “Creamsicle” is used to describe any flavor combination that mimics this iconic treat.

Orange Italian Soda with Syrup

If you’re a fan of the classic creamsicle, you’ll love our creamy orange Italian soda. It’s a delicious fountain soda with a creamy orange flavor reminiscent of a fresh Italian orange fountain drink. 

It has a combination of fizziness and creaminess that makes orange cream sodas so irresistible. 

Our Italian orange cream soda brings the joy of a summer afternoon to any time of the year. 

Why Use Water

The use of carbonated water is a nod to the original Italian sodas from the 19th century. Torani first created them to create a variety of drinks in the popular soda fountains in the early 1920s.

If you don’t want to use club soda or carbonated water, you could use a can of carbonated orange soda and eliminate the Torani syrup. The nice thing about using the Torani syrup is that you can adjust the amount of sweet orange flavor to your liking. 

You could also replace the club soda with Sprite or a similar drink, but it will be much sweeter.

Whether it’s our homemade Italian Orange Cream Soda or variations of soda recipes, the use of carbonated water makes this a more nostalgic drink, and it helps keep soda recipes from being too overpoweringly sweet.

Italian Sodas

Italian sodas have always been a crowd-pleaser, and this orange float soda is no different. This cream soda has a classic mixture of rich creaminess and tangy citrus flavor, which makes it a truly delicious treat. 

Take a sip, and you’ll love in the luxurious ice cream blended with sweet orange syrup in the soda. The creamsicle orange soda is a timeless classic that kids and adults alike will enjoy.

Hello, James: Thank you for reaching out to us on this recipe, I apologize for the confusion with the servings. At the top of the recipe it says that it is for 1 glass of soda. The figure in the serving amount was in error with 2 servings. I have corrected the recipe card to indicate 1 serving. Thanks for catching that error.
