I have a yummy Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda Recipe for you
Childhood memories and a twist on a classic Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda!
Few things bring to mind my childhood, like a homemade cream soda. I remember drinking them through a straw at the kitchen table, surrounded my family and lots of laughter. It’s no wonder I can’t resist a cream soda as an adult! I recently decided that I was going to put a little spin on this favorite drink of mine. I normally would have a vanilla cream soda but I wanted something a little bit different. I love the way vanilla and cherry compliment each other, so I figured the combo would be perfect for cream soda. And boy, was I right! This cherry vanilla cream soda is so good you won’t be able to get enough of it.
Not in the mood for cherry? How ’bout chocolate instead?
My very favorite thing about this recipe is that you can change the flavor to whatever you are in the mood for. I love using chocolate syrup also for a chocolate cream soda. This recipe is very versatile and you will use it over and over again as you try new and different flavors.
Make sure you have a straw; it doesn’t taste the same without one!
Every time I take a sip of this cherry vanilla cream soda I remember special days and moments from when I was growing up. Of course, just like when I was a kid, I have to use a straw!
