Ingredients
  • 3 cups raspberry syrup (recommended: Torani)

    Though this is a great recipie. I wanted to note that the way it is prepared in this recipie it is not "italian ice" but shaved ice. To be Italian ice it would not use ice and shave it, but water would be added to the ingredients and it would be frozen in an ice cream maker. And this combination would make a great Italian ice! Italian ice is actually more like ice cream than shaved ice. Most people would not know, They are just looking for a fun summer treat, and this is definatly a great recipie for a fun summer treat
    this recipe is easy and delicious,
