Egg Cream

Egg Cream has to be one  of the best fountain drinks ever created.   This  sweet fizzy beverage was invented in Brooklyn by Louis Auster, in the late 19th century. Egg Cream contains no eggs or cream.    You just need three ingredients, milk, chocolate syrup, and seltzer water.
To make an Egg Cream you pour the milk and chocolate syrup in a glass and top with seltzer water.  Quick and easy:)  You'd better drink it quick because it tends to fall flat.
An interesting note:  National Egg Cream Day is March 15!

  1. I love egg creams! I used to make them when I was a teenager working in at a soda fountain! If you live where I do you make them with “U Bet” chocolate syrup!! Oh so perfect for this hot weather we’re having…you just inspired me!! Have a great day, Geri!!

  3. I have never had an egg cream, Geri. Being from the midwest, we weren't so "sophisticated". I'll give it a try.
