In the United States sparkling soda is typically thought by brand name like Coca-Cola, rather than by flavor. In Italy, traditional sodas offer yet another fun experience in flavor combinations. Italian sodas are simply a mixture of plain soda water and your choice of flavored syrups made in Italy. If you prefer creme soda, your drink can be topped with whole cream and/or whipped cream. Most people agree that this simple combination is a refreshing & "flavorable" break from typical sodas.
