We all have that favorite childhood food memory.
If you had the pleasure of growing up in NYC, you have many. From your favorite hot dog cart outside Yankee Stadium to a great bagel to the often copied Egg Cream.
For some, just a taste brings us right back to the days when the only thing we worried about was there going to enough time to finish all 9 innings.
Here is the recipe. To do it correctly, it needs to be in an old school Coca Cola glass. It will bring back the good ol' days.
(does not contain eggs or cream)
Ingredients:½ c cold whole milk*
1 c bottled seltzer
2 T chocolate syrup**
* Skim or 1% milk won't foam as well
** 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).
NOTE: Do not let Egg Cream sit for a long period of time-5 minutes or more; it will go flat.
Makes 1 serving.
