The family recipe from Russ & Daughters in NYC.

Careful preparation is at the heart of a perfect chocolate egg cream at Russ & Daughters, where they’re known for this and other variations on the classic frothy delight.


  • 4 Tbsp. Fox’s U-bet chocolate syrup
  • 4 oz. whole milk
  • Chilled seltzer
  • Tools:spoon
  • Glass:highball


Add the syrup and milk (it’s essential that the milk is very cold) to a tall glass. Add seltzer until the level is one inch below the top of the glass. Stir in a back-and-forth motion (not a circular swirl) to combine. Let the mixture settle for a moment, then top with additional seltzer, producing a thick, white head of foam. Serve with a straw.
