Italian Cream Soda

Last night I decided to make some Italian Cream Sodas for the Senior High students at our church during their YouTube Movie night! 

With help from a few other leaders they were a success!

Here is the recipe:

Italian Cream Sodas
8oz. Ginger Ale
3 TBSP. Flavored Syrup (my favorite is Raspberry)
2 TBSP Half and Half

They are SUPER easy to make...
We used 16 oz glasses which were perfect size. 
Have the cup 1/2 full of ice then start adding ingredients. 

Pour in the Ginger Ale first...

Then add your flavored syrup...

Then add your Half and Half...

Stick a straw in and stir...

Then enjoy...

I thought I would show you how cheap you can make these drinks. Last night I made 24 (16 oz) drinks. Here is the break down in cost. I bought everything at Cub Foods with no coupons.  

10 lbs of ice: $1.95 
(*I later found out you can get a 10 lb bag at Arby's for $1)
Cups (for 24): $1.20
Straws (for 100): $0.85
Ginger Ale (off brand): $2.40 (for 3-2 liters)
Half and Half: $1.35 (used 1)
I had the flavored syrup already..can't remember the price. Bought it at Sam's Club, I believe around $4 and it's a large bottle. Cub was $4.99 for a small bottle (I didn't buy it).

Each drink was around $0.30 give or take a few cents since I can't remember the syrup cost. I bought mine at Sam's Club and if you have to buy it at Cub or Walmart your cost will go up more then at Sam's Club.
