Thirsty Thursdays: Classic Egg Cream

September 20, 2012

Egg cream is a classic soda fountain drink from New York.  Ironically, this beverage contains neither egg nor cream.  It contains only three ingredients:  milk, chocolate syrup, and seltzer water.  A true egg cream uses Fox's U Bet Chocolate syrup but if that brand is unavailable, it's ok to use another.  This fizzy drink is a tasty pick me up at the end of a long day.
