Sweet cherry, rich heavy cream and club soda hit all the right notes in this pretty pink Cherry Cream Soda.

One of my favorite things about blogging on food and crafts is that I get to be creative with products that I love and use regularly.

While my creativity in food leans towards desserts and other sweets, I do enjoy a good drink as well! Both cocktails and non-cocktails.

Since it’s been a few minutes since I’ve posted a new drink recipe, I figured why not make it the ultimate classic, a rich and creamy Cherry Cream Soda?!

CHERRY CREAM SODA INGREDIENTS

All you need for this easy drink recipe is:

Cream Soda

My favorite is A&W, because it tastes just as good as their root beer tastes in this root beer float recipe, but feel free to use your favorite brand.

Heavy Cream

Adds a nice creamy consistency and flavor with just the barest hint of sweetness.

Grenadine Cherry Flavored Syrup

Make sure you are getting Grenadine flavored syrup, not the alcoholic version grenadine! Although for an adult treat, I bet the alcoholic version would be extra yummy! 😉

Maraschino Cherries

To garnish the drink.

EASY CHERRY CREAM SODA RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

This is a very basic recipe, but it still tastes pretty great! The reason it is so simple is because it uses already-made cream soda. In fact, this recipe is so simple that the kids can make it themselves.

Step One: Add Soda

First add the cream soda to the pitcher.

pour cream soda in pitcher

Step Two: Add Heavy Cream

Next, pour in the heavy cream. 20 seconds.

add cream to cream soda in pitcher

Step Three: Pour in Grenadine

Now, add in the grenadine and stir well to mix all ingredients together. I usually stir for about 20 seconds just to ensure all three ingredients are completely combined.

next add grenadine

Step Four: Pour

Pour the Cherry Cream Soda over ice in a well-chilled glass.

Step Five: Garnish

Grab a cherry for garnish. Then add a fun straw (how cute are these heart shaped straws?!) and enjoy! YUM!

CHERRY CREAM SODA VARIATIONS

Another thing I love about this tasty recipe is that it is very versatile. There are so many variations you can make, and they all taste great! Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Change up the flavor by using flavored syrups of your choice. I prefer Torani’s syrups.
  • Make it cherry vanilla by adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract or some vanilla syrup.
  • Turn it into an adult drink by adding a splash of vodka.
  • Create a Cherry Cream Soda Float by adding a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream to the glass.
