Chocolate Egg Cream

So my Husband is from Brooklyn, NY and tells me of childhood memories of going to the soda shop or “soda fountain” to get a chocolate egg cream

I, on the other hand was born and raised in Upstate NY and had never heard of an egg cream.  Does it have eggs in it???

Nope.  No eggs.

Just icy cold milk, a spritz of bubbly seltzer and apparently the only chocolate syrup that real New Yorkers would even consider putting in their egg creams

U-bet.  No really, that’s what it’s called

So I planned to make this drink with the normal chocolate syrup that we always have in our fridge when another friend told me that authentic egg creams are only made with U-bet chocolate syrup

Enter Amazon.com.  Of course they had it

Enough chit chat, I’m thirsty

Squirt 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (preferably U-Bet, but we’ve gone over that) and add 6 ounces of icy cold milk.  Stir well

Top with chilled seltzer and experience the nostalgia of an old school soda shop!
