- 1 pint best-quality coffee ice cream or gelato
- 4 ounces liqueur, such as sambuca, amaretto, or Frangelico (optional)

Just before serving, scoop ice cream into four small bowls or large coffee cups. Divide liqueur among four small glasses, if using; serve liqueur and espresso alongside each bowl, and let each person pour them over the ice cream.
