Cream Soda ( Italian and Traditional )

My husband LOVES cream soda.  A few years ago I convinced him to give up store bought soda, in exchange he was allowed to make his own italian sodas at home from carbonated water and flavored syrups, he was okay with this until he realized that he would need recipes for such sodas.  So here are two recipes for cream soda, one is the traditional American version, which oddly enough contains no cream at all, and then there is the Italian version which does contain cream. Try both, see which one you prefer.

Italian Cream Soda

2 Tbsp Vanilla syrup
6-8 oz carbonated water (aka soda water)
2 oz cream

Mix all ingredients together, serve over ice.

Traditional Cream Soda

2 Tbsp Vanilla syrup
1 pinch brown sugar
8 oz carbonated water (aka soda water)

Dissolve brown sugar in vanilla syrup. Combine syrup mixture and carbonated water, serve over ice.
