In need of a creative party drink but not sure where to start! Try a simple Italian Soda Beverage Bar!
When I was tasked to come up with a fun beverage idea for an afternoon adult birthday party that could also be kid friendly, I'm not going to lie I was a bit stumped. My usual party drinks involve fun cocktails and bubbly champagne sips, but after a bit of Pinterest browsing, it hit me... let's do an Italian Soda Bar!
Not only is it self-serve, able to sit out throughout the party, and pretty straight forward it's fun because you get to build your own beverage choices with the flavor options!

It is truly simple, this beverage bar works on either a countertop or a bar cart and really only requires a few grocery store ingredients to bring it all together and a pop of colorful decor to give it a special touch!
Flavored syrups (this was honestly the hardest part to find - I lucked out and found 3 great flavors at Homegoods but if not you may have to order online)
Start by adding the crushed ice to the bottom of your cup, throw in a couple pumps of of the flavored syrup. Once you've made your flavor selection, fill with sparkling water and top with a touch of cream. Not only does this create a fizzy flavorful drink but it tastes delicious too and is a very special treat for any younger guests in attendance!
If you want to give your guests a little extra frothy fun you can also include whip cream to top off their fancy beverage!
Now that you have all the key ingredients, you can stop there or you can add on some party flair with fun paper patterned straws, drink flags, and a pop of color or pattern with your beverage napkin!
For this particular party, we really liked the idea of some simple straw flags to add that extra element of fun and surprise for our guests so we printed these free at home party printables & added them with our favorite party items (click photos for links)!
And when it comes to party napkins, well Sprinkles & Confetti has you covered.
