RECIPE: Espresso Ice Cream Shooters

In no more than five minutes, you can make a drinkable dessert for grown-ups: espresso shooters with ice cream. This recipe comes from Starbucks, which has easy recipe ideas on its ice cream website.

Serves 4.



  • 1 cup Starbucks VIA Italian Roast or Decaf Italian Roast, prepared according to package directions and chilled (or brew and chill espresso/Italian roast coffee from scratch)
  • 1 small scoop (4 tablespoons) coffee ice cream
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon coffee liqueur per shot glass
  • Optional: cinnamon or chocolate-covered espresso bean for garnish

    1. Add four teaspoons of liqueur to espresso. Pour chilled espresso into 4 chilled shot glasses.

    2. If you are not using the liqueur, no sweetener is necessary. But if your preference is for sweet coffee, pre-sweeten the cup of coffee before pouring into shot glasses.

    3. Top with a cookie scoop’s worth of coffee ice cream. Garnish, if desired, with cinnamon and serve with cut straws and/or espresso spoons.
