How to Make a New York Egg Cream
The New York Egg Cream is almost exclusively a fountain drink. Although there have been several attempts to bottle it, none have been wholly successful, as its fresh taste and characteristic head requires mixing of the ingredients just before drinking. It has been described as a "poor man's ice cream soda," because it has a similar overall flavor, but is traditionally sold for only a slight premium over an ordinary fountain soda. While it has no eggs or cream, itdidget its start in New York, and it's making a comeback all over!
Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Flavor Syrup
Bottled Seltzer Water
Get a tall, chilled, straight-sided, or Coca-Cola eight-ounce glass.
Spoon 1 inch (2.5 cm) of chocolate syrup (ideally U-bet Chocolate Flavor Syrup) into the glass.
Add 1 inch (2.5 cm) of whole milk over the syrup.
Pour in cold seltzer (aka soda water) making a nice foamy head to within 1 inch (2.5 cm) of the top of the glass.Use the spoon when pouring to prevent direct pouring into the syrup and milk.
Stir vigorously with a long spoon to mix the syrup and milk into the seltzer foam.
Enjoy the true experience by sipping it slowly with a long straw.Use the straw to stir in between sips. Allow yourself to make sipping noise with the straw as you clean up the foam around the edge of the glass. Enjoy!
QuestionWhere can I get the best seltzer water?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTrader Joe's has great seltzer water.Thanks!
QuestionDoes an inch of milk is equal three cups of milk? It doesn't seem right.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt really depends how wide the glass is. It is possible that an inch of milk in a large casserole dish could equal three cups.Thanks!
QuestionWhat kind of seltzer water do you use?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAny kind, as long as it's plain without added flavors. If you can not find any seltzer water, ice-cold club soda would also work for this recipe.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use ginger ale instead?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, though the ginger ale will change the flavor.Thanks!
- No other chocolate syrup will give you the same taste or foam as Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Flavor Syrup. It has been mentioned in all the external articles below as the brand that is used to make the New York Egg Cream.You can probably use any type of chocolate syrup. However, it will not be the same New York Egg Cream.
- Skim or 1% milk won't foam as well. Non-homogenized milk is not recommended.
- Bottled seltzer water will not pour out of the bottle with enough velocity to foam the milk, so stir vigorously to get the real thick foam.
- Do not let egg cream sit for more than five minutes as it will start to go flat.
