Black Bottom Special
Vanilla ice cream
Into each of 4-6 chilled 8 or 10 ounce glasses, spoon 3 tablespoon of the chocolate syrup. Stir ice cream to soften slightly; quickly blend in milk and coffee. Pour mixture over syrup in glasses. Trim with shaved unsweetened chocolate, if desired.
You can also use 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon instead of the instant coffee.
