The Simple Soda

To replicate the fifties beverage with modern ingredients, use seltzer water or club soda and the type of syrup used for ice cream topping or for mixing into coffee drinks

To make your soda: mix 3 oz. of syrup to 10 oz. of seltzer water, stir, and you're done. Add ice if desired.

Egg Cream:

Seltzer water or club soda
Chocolate syrup — dark chocolate is super! (And thin syrup is easier to mix.)
Ice cold milk
A tall glass
A long spoon

Cover the bottom of your glass with a thick layer of chocolate syrup (the richer, the better!), then fill the glass 3/4 full with seltzer water. Top it off with enough milk to fill the glass, while stirring vigorously. This creates the foam head and mixes the ingredients together at the same time. (Don't stir so hard you break the glass, or, if you're clever, use a plastic spoon to make the job easier.) If you're a purist, seek out some Fox's U-Bet syrup and don't put it in at the beginning. Instead, save it for last, drizzling it into the drink while stirring gently, so as not to ruin the foam head. The result will be a pristinely pure white foam over a dark brown bottom — you can tell if you've added enough syrup by the color.

Hint: Try this with different flavored syrups for a more exotic egg cream sensation!
