Egg Cream Recipe!!!

<--I am rather proud of this!
The Egg Cream first appeared in NYC and Brooklyn in the 1800's and has been one of the most refreshing drinks you can imagine!! And tasty? You Bet!! No eggs and no cream in them though.


Here.. make one for yourself and you will see how wonderful they are:
About 1/2 cup cold whole milk
1 cup bottled seltzer
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Syrup is the one to use if you can!

Pour about half an inch of cold milk into a tall chilled soda glass. Add seltzer or club soda to within 1 inch of the top of the glass; stir briskly with a long spoon to make it frothy..really frothy.

Pour in some chocolate syrup, approx 2 heaping Tablespoons. Let it drizzle down the inside of the glass then give some more brisk stirring action.
Serve cold with a straw.
Ok.. ok.. if you really have to break tradition, you could add a couple spoonfulls of vanilla icecream and I wont't tell .

  9. Ben Yehuda, UBet is the best, but any good chocolate syrup will work.
    Make sure the milk and seltzer are ice cold!
    Hope you enjoy them!
    Thanks for the compliment on the blog I really appreciate it.:)

  10. Ben-Yehuda:

    Try Sano-Javel or Neka-Bon. Both are great brands of chocolate syrup!
