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.
