What better way to enjoy any gathering than turning a childhood favorite into a grown-up drink? Learn how to make this homemade orange cream soda and serve it at your next get-together.
The rage all over Utah are these soda bars that can customize any soda. They’ve got all the syrups, creams and citrus you can imagine. Inspired by this idea I knew immediately that I wanted to use Squirt for my own creation. I also wanted to use orange flavoring because I love pairing citrus flavors together. Learn how to make your very own Orange Cream Soda right at home.
How do I make Orange Cream Soda at home?
To start, head over to the grocery store grab some Squirt, heavy cream, and some orange syrup. I like to use Torani or other similar companies that make drink syrups. Don’t buy orange extract or anything like that. You’ll be grossed out immediately. 😉
Now, you’ll want to add some ice to your cups about half full and add a tablespoon of orange syrup. I used 12oz. cups so adjust your recipe if you have larger or smaller vessels.
Next, you’ll pour enough Squirt to equate to 1″ below the glass rim. Now add 2 tablespoons of your cream and stir. This amount of cream definitely gives you a creamier taste, go ahead and use half and half for it to be a little better on your waistline. That’s it! It’s so easy to create your own homemade Orange Cream Soda. Use this recipe and try different syrups added to your sodas. Also, I’m not opposed to you making this more adult-friendly either. Some recipes are meant to be played with and adjusted to your own taste.
I love me some good soda and I love Italian Soda’s even more.

I am a huge fan of Italian sodas. I don’t usually do whipping cream whipped on top, I just pour half and half. However, if you’re waiting to have a beautiful piece of art work to treat someone, WHIP THE CREAM! It’s my go-to drink at the coffee shop but at $3 a pop, I’d rather save me some cash and make them at home. Here is a great recipe using Canada Dry Ginger Ale®. These are the small things in life that make me happy, saving cash here and there…it’s a thrill!

Use Canada Dry Ginger Ale instead of sparkling water as a twist to this classic recipe.

Take a 12 oz. cup and fill it with some ice. Use 1 Tbsp of raspberry flavor syrup and 1 1/4 cup Original Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and mix. Either pour the cream directly into the cup or whip the cream and add it to the top.
Make your very own dirty Diet Coke at home using cream. It makes it that much better. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
If there is something that I indulge in, it’s my drinks. I’m a sucker for speciality drinks. Lime Rickeys, Dirty Diet Coke, Shirley Temples, and now a new one, Creamy Coco-Colas. You can make these using standard or Diet Coke or Pepsi, whichever floats your boat. It is delish-ish-ous!
So there are only three things you’ll need to get this treat in your hand, four if you count the glass, but those are overrated! Grab your fav dark soda, coconut syrup, and some heavy cream. If you’re watching your waistline you can go for the half & half, but I just go for it. I’m already to the breaking point here, so I’m going all in.
Cream First, add your ice. Pebble ice is always preferred in drinks but really, it’s just a personal preference on how much you want in the first place. The ice will melt, meaning your drink will eventually separate if you don’t drink it fast enough. Pebble ice is nice because it won’t be a huge amount of water into your soda. I also really like styrofoam cups but they aren’t very pretty. Next, for a 16 oz. cup like this one, you’ll want to do about 1-1 1/2 pumps of your coconut syrup then add your soda and stir. Add your cream at the very end. I added about 2 teaspoons and it was plenty. The more cream you add, it’ll be on the border of a root beer float. That is also another variation of this drink you can do but without the syrup! In the pictures, I did not stir it because it gives a prettier effect. When you stir it, it will turn a light brown and be one of the best drinks EVER! I tend to think that a lot on my recipes! I hope you give this recipe a try, let me know if you did. I’d love to hear your feedback!
