- 1 cup Topo Chico Sparkling Mineral Water Chilled
- 6 TBSP Raspberry Flavored Simple Syrup
- 2 TBSP Half & Half
- 6 each Ice cubes
- Whipped cream
- 1 each cherry
Add ice cubes to a frosted glass.
Measure out about 1 cup Topo Chico Sparkling Mineral Water and pour into glass.
Measure out 6 TBSP Flavored Simple Syrup. You can find this type of syrup in the coffee section at just about any grocery store. I found vanilla everywhere but had a hard time finding any fruity flavors. I finally found Raspberry at a beer & wine super store. The bottles cost anywhere from $3.50 to $12 each depending on the brand and will make about 12-14 of the drinks at least.
While this recipe calls for only rasberry, we also tested a mix of vanilla and raspberry and it was ridiculously delicious.
Add the syrup to the soda.
Just before serving add the 2 TBSP of Half & Half to the soda/ syrup mixture. This is cool – as the cream seeps down it makes a really cool design and the floats on the bottom of the glass. Try and not shake the glasses around too much so that the design is preserved – serve with whipped cream and a cherry on top along with something to stir with prior to drinking.
It’s fun to admire the cool swirls of the syrup and cream, but encourage everyone to give it a little stir before drinking so that all the flavors meld.
