Print Recipe
2 oz
U-Bet chocolate syrup
1 oz
You can add up to 2 ounces based on your own tastes.
*Show Note
¾ c
club soda

Surprisingly, there are no eggs or cream in this favorite fountain drink. It’s actually made with chocolate syrup, milk, and club soda. The key to the perfect egg cream is the ratio of syrup to milk, so feel free to adjust accordingly.


  1. Pour the chocolate syrup into a chilled glass, then add milk. Stir well.
  2. Top with club soda. Serve immediately.
