Plum Italian Cream Soda

Total Time 5 mins


  • 12 oz glass


  • ½ c sugar
  • ½ c water
  • 10 plums more if desired
  • 8 oz. tonic or soda water (must be VERY bubbly soda)
  • ½ c cream
  • ½ c milk


  • Make the simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Add 8 plums to the water, boil down. Once it becomes more liquid then add the other plums and take off the heat. Cool. (extra syrup can be saved for up to 3 days in the refrigerator)
  • Fill your glass with desired ice. Fill the glass 3/4 full with soda. Add 1 cup of the syrup then pour over the cream and milk. Stir. Add garnish, for example, lime and extra plums.
  • For Italian Ice smoothies, add more syrup, whole plums, and ice. Blend gently. Freeze the remainder for popsicles.
