At Eataly, head to the refrigerated section near the cheeses and cured meats to find Gazzosa, elegant glass bottles wrapped in yellow. Are you a 7-Up or Sprite drinker? This will blow both out of the water.

The fizzy Gazzosa is made from those treasured Italian Amalfi lemons, simultaneously succulent, tart, and sweet. It's what commercial American sodas aim to achieve, a concoction clean and sweet without being the least bit cloying. It's sold at Eataly by the four-pack for $7.98.
