This Strawberry Italian soda, is a refreshing non-alcoholic drink. It's very easy to make, with only a few ingredients, like strawberry sundae syrup, sparkling water and whipped cream. It's the perfect mocktail for celebrations, summer BBQ's or movie night.

Add crushed ice to a tall glass and pour in sundae syrup.
Add the sparkling water.
Spray a little whipped cream in.
Stir in whipped cream. *At this point, taste it to ensure it's sweet enough for your taste
Garnish with additional whipped cream, fresh strawberries and sprinkles. Serve immediately.
You can go out and buy the special syrup, if you so desire, but it's not necessary.
WW friendly version: You could use a sugar-free syrup to reduce the calories, but you'd need to buy the special syrup (i.e. Torani) as I was not able to find a brand of reduced sugar or sugar-free sundae syrup in strawberry flavor (only caramel or chocolate). This drink is high in points because of the sugar in the sundae sauce.
You can also use real whipped cream instead of the spray whipped cream. And you don't need to use the light version (that just happens to be the one I always have on hand). However, it will increase the calories in this drink.
You can even use different flavored syrups and different fruit. You could also add more fresh fruit on top or even in the drink, itself.
Some recipes suggest using club soda, but I tried it and didn't enjoy the taste. I recommend sticking to the lemon or lime sparkling water
