A New York Treat

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

If you are going to be cruising out of New York City you have to take time to experience some of the local favorites like a slice of gooey cheese pizza or perhaps a Reuben sandwich from the Carnegie deli. But even if you can’t make it to New York for your next cruise, give yourself a New York style treat with an Egg Cream. It is believed this drink, which is similar to a milkshake, was first made by a Brooklyn candy shop owner in the 1900s.


  • .5 cup cold whole milk (or try it with half and half)
  • 1 cup bottled seltzer
  • 2 tbsp chocolate syrup


  • Stir milk and seltzer together.
  • Then stir in the chocolate syrup.

Quick and simple. What is your favorite NYC treat?

This is a great alternative to a milkshake and the seltzer makes it interesting. I’ll have to try it this summer. Thanks!
