Star Wars™ Inspired Boba Fett Soda!


Every once in a while I crave some bubbly. I'm not typically a soda drinker, but I love the sparkles!

I grew up drinking Italian sodas, so I thought I'd try making something to satisfy the craving with less sugar and heaviness. I wanted to figure out a way to have the bubble, a hint of sweet, and not a fruity flavor. 

Remember those Star Wars™ + Coffeemate creamers from Force Friday? :)

Well, believe me when I say that I have plenty. There were five Star Wars™ flavors, and one was Italian Sweet Crème! It also happened to be Boba Fett bottle design, hence the name. 

Italian sodas are made with just a couple of ingredients. Super easy, super fast. They are also fairly cheap. Well, I tested out my own recipe tonight and I'd like to introduce my new recipe:

Boba Soda! 

What you'll need:

  • 1 - 2 tbsp Boba Fett Italian Sweet Crème creamer
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Syrup 
  • 8 oz Club Soda
  • Ice
  • Whip Cream (optional)

Add your ice, club soda, creamer (I liked it with 1 tbsp, my kids preferred it with 2), then syrup. Stir it up and drop in a fun straw. It's always more fun with a straw.

And there you have it! Easy, peasy! This would have been an awesome drink to serve at my son's Star Wars™ Episode X party, but we can have it for our Force Awakens celebration instead! 

Be creative and try out any creamer flavor or syrup combo. I was happy with the slight hint of vanilla, and more bubble. 

Too bad the Force can't whip me up another! Are you brave enough to try out the Boba Soda? 

My Coffee Smiles. It has The Force.

Because, Star Wars. 

Listen, coffee is not something I joke about. It's a serious lifeline. 

Today, my coffee just became more powerful.

I'm trying the Spiced Latte today, and it's like holiday season in my mouth. It has a cinnamon and spice type taste.

It makes me happy.

Tomorrow, (#ForceFriday) I'm going to the Dark Side and will try the Espresso Chocolate.

I hear there are FIVE (5) flavors.

Yes, I will attempt to find them all.

I now LITERALLY have The Force within me... along with some amazing Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf roast. haha.

Sidenote: I picked my limited edition Star Wars™ Coffemate® creamer up at Target.
