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.

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 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.
