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.
