There's a theory that if coffee was discovered today it would be deemed an illegal substance due to its stimulating properties. True or not, I am thankful coffee has been consumed since about the 10th century and there seems little threat of it being outlawed. Jane Strode

Ingredients

premium vanilla-bean icecream

espresso coffee shot

(optional) a shot of your favourite liqueur, such as grappa, Sambuca or Frangelico

Method

Place one or two scoops of ice-cream in a latte glass or similar, prepare a shot of hot coffee (with an espresso machine, a stovetop coffee pot or very strong plunger coffee) and pour coffee over ice-cream.
