Italian Soda Valentine with International Delights // Every year for Valentine's Day my family has a special tradition… We have a fun Valentine's Day dinner together with all the pink, red and heart fixin's. Some of the items on the menu heart shaped pizza, heart shaped jell-o and for a special drink we have Italian Sodas with some type of red or pink soda. With all the heart shaped fun, my kiddos favorite is the Italian soda. If you don't know what an Italian soda is, it's basically some type of flavored soda as the base and then you add a shot of cream to make it extra special. I thought I could take it a step further and create a fun little gift that we can give out as Valentine's to our friends and family this year. With the help of International Delight's handy little creamer cups it worked like a charm!
It is jus the cutest little Valentine and something original that everyone will just adore. Here is what you will need…
- Red or pink soda of your choice
- International Delight creamer cups, in original or vanilla
- A fun straw
- Baker's twine
- A standard hole punch
- scissors & paper cutter
- Printable bottle label
- Double sided tape
- Plain printer paper
Print the label that I created for this project on plain printer paper.
Cut the labels out and secure to the bottle with double sided tape.
Carefully punch a hole in the tab of the creamer cup and set aside.
Cut baker's twine long enough to wrap around the bottle twice, roughly 24 inches. Wrap the bottle with the bakers twine twice and tie into a basic knot. Tie the straw on next and secure with a bow with long ends. Thread the creamer cup onto the ends of the baker's twine bow and secure with a knot. Voila, you have the cutest Valentine and your kiddos and friends will love it.
Now, you can create you Italian Soda two ways… Pour your chilled soda into a glass and add the creamer or, take a few drinks out of the bottle and then carefully add the creamer to the bottle of soda. Be careful with the second method because the soda will bubble up with the addition of the creamer. Stir or swirl the soda to mix and enjoy!
