DIY Summertime Soda Bar| Our Favorite Torani Drink Combos


This post is sponsored by Torani.

Summer is one of my very favorite seasons. Not only do we celebrate Kyle and Kinsley's birthdays, but it's also an awesome time to get together with friends and neighbors, and catchup on all the events from the school year with one another. 


We love hosting little parties for friends at our house, and thought it would be fun to kick off summer with a DIY soda and snow cone bar with some friends when school got out. Here where we live, soda shops are literally on every corner. You drive through, order a soda with whatever version of Torani syrup you like best, and go about the rest of your day. I definitely think this is something that is unique to where we live, but I seriously love it! 


Torani syrups are great because they're crafted to bring the best out in your drinks or dessert, so you can make something your own in a delicious way. I love that they're made with real and simple ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors. They're also incredibly easy to use, simply pour a little into your drink, or on top of shaved ice to create a delicious and refreshing summer drink or treat. 


For this soda and snow cone bar, I gathered up some of my favorite Torani Flavors from World Market: Watermelon, Peach, Mango, Lime, and Coconut. Then I gathered together some of our favorite sodas, and a large bowl of shaved ice for the kids to make snow cones, and let everyone have fun making their favorite treat. 

Our kids and their friends were so delighted over this little party that they've been begging to have a "soda stand" this summer to make a little money. It's such a fun and cute idea that I totally think we might have to oblige them and make it happen! 

Watermelon Peach Mountain Dew:
12oz Mountain Dew
1 tbsp Torani Watermelon Syrup
1 tbsp Torani Peach Syrup
Ice

Crazy Coke Zero:
1 tbsp Torani Coconut Syrup
1 tbsp Torani Lime Syrup
12 oz Coke Zero
Ice

DIY Snow Cones:
Put a bunch of ice into a food processor and blend until it resembles a fine snow consistency. Top with your favorite Torani flavored syrups for the perfect summer treat your kids will love! Bonus points if you find some snow cone cups!
