Ingredients
  • For the chocolate syrup:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the egg cream:
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons half-and-half

Directions

Make the chocolate syrup: Bring the sugar and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla and salt and whisk until well combined. Let cool completely.

For each drink, pour about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the chocolate syrup into a chilled shot glass and freeze until slightly firm, 5 to 10 minutes. Slowly pour the half-and-half on top of the chocolate syrup, then top with seltzer. Stir before drinking. (Refrigerate any leftover chocolate syrup for up to 6 months.)
