#322 I miss Italian (vintage) soft drinks – 1

Spuma bionda

a soft drinks made with sparkling water, sugar, caramel, and spices created in the 1920s, still common in Italy… especially if you are more than 40 y.o. …

Gassosa, or gazzosa

another super-sweet soft drink, made with sparkling water (acqua gassata, ‘with gas’), sugar, and lemon, very popular in the 1950s and 1960s.

Cedrata

any Italian hummed the jungle at least once…
