I love Italian sodas (and such), but I've found it hard to find recipes. So I love that you posted this recipe. My favorite Italian soda uses hazlenut syrup.

What you are making is actually a Cremosa. The italian soda does not have cream. The way they do it in most coffee shops is they put the syrup in first, then the ice, then club soda, the you use a spoon and pull the syrup up with out stirring till its mixed, then pour the cream on the top and stir once, its supposed to help keep up the carbonation. Great drink! Raspberry is my fav.
