Italian Ice Sodas Bring Bubbles and Fizz to Everyday Surprises

When it comes to adding a little color and flavor to the day, Sonesta ES Suites Auburn Hills Detroit recently had a surprisingly different solution! On a recent evening during the social hour at “The Pour,” the staff opened a personalized soda fountain for guests and served authentic made-to-order Italian Ice Sodas. All the activity (and the fizz!) attracted a lot of attention and Charles Oliver, the Director of Sales, said, “the guests enjoyed having something different than the normal beverages served during the social.” Some travelers who hailed from Korea had never heard of such a drink and even came back for seconds.

The drink was such a smash that we’re happy to share the simple recipe here. Enjoy!
