Raspberry Italian Soda

What Is Italian Soda?
If you have never tried an Italian soda, you really are in for a treat! Italian soda is like drinking the fizziest, creamiest soda ever!  Despite the name, this bubbly drink did not originate in Italy, but in the United States in the 1920s.  You can most often find Italian sodas in fruity flavors, but they can really be made with any flavoring.
