A classic drink that actually uses neither egg nor cream! This is an old NYC drink from back in the days of soda and milkshake shops. This always reminds me of Sunday mornings with my father.

As a boy in NY, I grew up on these. In my neighborhood, they used ice-cold milk, and whipped it with the syrup in a blender before adding it to the seltzer water. My favorite was the Vanilla Egg Cream (egg creams were not necessarily Chocolate). Today, I make them with the Torani Vanilla (-not- French Vanilla) syrup.

This is great! The only change I made was using light cream or half-n-half. and club soda. I mixed the cream and chocolate syrup in glass, added ice to top and poured the club soda on top. Unbelievably refreshing. It's not bad with a splash of Kahlua too.

Just like the ones my grandmothers made for me growing up in NY. Thank you!
