Once more with Feeling!
This was very popular when first published so here it is again because people asked.
It is a staple at the Rock and Roll Cafe.
Once you try it , it will be a favorite of your own too.
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
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 .
