Vanilla Egg Cream
Presented by Diana’s Cafe
- 2 oz. vanilla syrup (not vanilla extract)*
- 8 oz. whole milk
- Chilled club soda for topping
*Find this in the ice cream or ice cream condiment section of most food stores.
Fill a 20-ounce glass with ice. Pour the vanilla syrup into glass. Add milk and stir. Top the glass with club soda. Enjoy!
NOTE: Containing no eggs and no cream, this refreshingly light and frothy summer drink has been a double misnomer for well over a century. An old-school soda fountain specialty that originated somewhere in New York City – the exact inception remains a hotly debated topic – keeps being rediscovered by new generations, and for good reason: It delivers all the comfort of a vanilla milkshake minus the cloying heaviness.
