New York Egg Cream from Scratch


No egg, no alcohol for this foamy drink! An impressive and fancy preparation.

I made my chocolate syrup at home and I suggest to adapt it to you taste.

Feel free to try some variations: adding cinnamon, making a chocolate mocha syrup or what you fantasy suggests to you.

You need:

Chocolate syrup (or 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup)

  • 10 g dark chocolate
  • 10 ml water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • a few drops vanilla extract, optional

Other ingredients

  • 2 ice cubes
  • ½ cup whole milk, ice cold
  • About 2 cups bottled plain seltzer water


  1. In a small microwave save bowl place the ingredients for the syrup.
  2. Heat for about 10 minutes, stir. Repeat several times until chocolate and sugar are dissolved.
  3. Add ice cubes and stir well until ice is melted and syrup is completely cold.
  4. Divide the syrup into two tall drinking glasses.
  5. Fill each glass with about 1/4 cup milk, stir with a long handled metal spoon to combine.
  6. Pour seltzer slowly into the milk chocolate mix. A creamy foam should rise and your drink is ready.

Note: For a whiter foam change the sequence: milk, seltzer, chocolate syrup and stir gently!
