We have one week – ONE WEEK!!! – until summer is done. I am in serious denial! We have been to the beach, the pool, the springs, we’ve eaten an exorbitant number of ice pops and have flip flop tans to prove that summer was awesome!
But in one short week I will have a 4th grader and a 7th grader … back to schedules and homework, projects and book fairs … SIGH. Are you in summer-can’t-be-over-yet denial, too?
Good! Let’s do something fun … just because! Like make homemade cream soda! Now, this doesn’t take exactly like store bought cream soda, but it’s sweet and fizzy and has that yummy vanilla-y flavor reminiscent of classic cream soda. And you can make a glass in just a few seconds and serve it with a cheery striped straw!
Homemade cream soda
12 oz. cold club soda
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Serve over ice if desired. Serve in a mason jar and sip through a striped paper straw and pretend that summer isn’t over just yet!!
Now ya’ll, this is not gourmet drink. It’s sweet and fizzy and fun to make with the kids … just what summer deserves!!
If you liked this easy cream soda, I bet you’ll love Shirley temple sweet tea, limeade sherbet fizz, ginger sweet tea sparklers and maybe margarita punch! All of these drinks are non-alcoholic so even the kids can enjoy them!
