New York Egg Cream # 2
- Approximately 1/2 cup cold whole milk
- 1 cup bottled seltzer
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup*
- * Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Syrup is used in New York.
Pour 1/2 inch of cold milk into a tall soda glass. Add seltzer or club soda to within 1 inch of the top of the glass; stir vigorously with a long spoon (this will cause it to become white and bubbly with a good head of foam). Very gently pour 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup slowly down the inside of the glass; briskly stir with a long spoon only at the bottom of the glass where the chocolate sits. The resulting drink should have a dark brown bottom and a 1-inch high pure white foam top (if you mix it too much, the foam disappears). Makes 1 servings.
