Chocolate Egg Cream
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon boiling water
- 1/2 cup lowfat milk, very cold
- 1 1/2 cups seltzer water (not club soda)
- 1 pretzel rod
In a small cup, mix together the cocoa powder and sugar. Add the water and stir well until a paste is formed. Set aside.
Put the milk into a tall fountain glass. Slowly add the seltzer water. Stir gently. Drizzle the chocolate syrup in slowly, being careful to disturb the foam as little as possible. Stir gently with a tall spoon. Your drink should be 2-toned, chocolate-brown on the bottom with a white foam on top.
Serve with a pretzel rod.
