New York's (Brooklyn's) Famous Egg Cream
Just three simple ingredients make up this famous New York soda fountain drink -- milk, seltzer water and chocolate syrup...and no egg!
1 cup milk
Sparkling seltzer water
About 2 tablespoons Fox's U-Bet Chocolate-Flavored Syrup*
- To concoct an authentic Brooklyn Egg Cream, pour milk into a glass. Add sparkling seltzer water until a white head reaches the top of the glass. Then, spoon in about 2 tablespoons of syrup with a little wrist action. Voilà!
Makes 1 serving.
* According to New York City-born actor, director, and comic genius, Mel Brooks, an admitted Egg Cream enthusiast, "You got to get Fox's U-Bet Syrup. If you use any other syrup the egg cream will be too bitter or too mild."
