Foist of all, I gotta say that I'm stunned at all the folks showing up to wish me well.

Second, no one is to make fun of an egg cream. They've kept me going in some very dark times. Hey, Margo. This is Noo Yawk. An egg cream has neither egg nor cream, a Bronx cheer is not a cheer, and a Noo Yawk minute ain't a minute.

Thoid, I think things are better today.

The fabled egg cream never made it to my circles. Can a novice from Texas make one?

@edgarblythe,
Hey edgar, I'm stickin' in my two cents' worth.

Use a big glass. Put in a little more syrup than you might use for a chocolate milk.

Add milk--about a third of the way up. Stir.

Add seltzer. It must be absolutely fresh, not a day old. Without fresh seltzer you don't get foam. Without foam you don't got an egg cream. Stir.

Don't fill the glass all the way to the top. You need room for the foam. And it will foam. Trust me.

Slurp, Do not under any circumstances use a straw. Anybody who serves an egg cream with a straw is a novice and doesn't know the world of the egg cream.

If you do it, let me know if you like it.

@Roberta,
I am glad you're feeling better today, Roberta - enough to get yourself an egg cream drink, virtually at least.

So you add seltzer to the milk and chocolate syrup? Can I use goat milk too? That's my choice of milk these days, tastes so delicious....

What on earth are you all talking about? Egg cream??? Milk, seltzer and chocolate syrup? What about the egg??? I’m sure we don’t have that in Germany!

@urs53,
Nope, Urs! In Germany you drink a nice ice caffee in the afternoon, that is real ice cream in cold coffee and whipped cream. So yummy!!

@dlowan,
Que? We don't have Golden North ice cream - it's either Italian gelato or French vanilla ...still yummy! What's wrong with whipped cream?

Sounds delicious. Now all I gotta do is figure out who sells seltzer.

@edgarblythe,
A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants (I bet Roberta knows what I’m talking about)

@CalamityJane,
I don’t like whipped cream!

Or gelato in iced coffee, come to that.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, Get club soda. It's the same thing.

glitter, Could you be referring to Chuckles the Clown from the MTM show? Poor guy got dressed up as a giant peanut and was attacked and killed by a hungry elephant.

Yes, omg I almost wizzed myself.....it’s like laughing in church or temple. Although I think the phrase came about before Seinfeld....my great aunt was a vaudeville performer, she used to use that phrase....I would laugh, I just never knew what it meant. But then again, if I think a bit, I can conjure up Uncle Miltie

In the supermarket this morning I saw sparkling seltzer, but did not like the packaging. I will eventually get some elsewhere.
