Spiced Coffee

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
2 cups brewed coffee or
1-2 cup brewed espresso with 1-2 cup boiling water added
1 cup cream
2 TB powdered sugar or
light whipped cream

In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Add the allspice, cinnamon, and ginger to the simple syrup and simmer for 5 minutes. Take pan off heat, add the brewed coffee or espresso, and add 1 cup of boiling water if using.  Make sure you strain the coffee to reduce the particles.  In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the confectioners’ sugar and continue to beat until stiff. Top each cup of espresso with a dollop of whipped cream. Dust with cinnamon and serve.  Of course you can experiment with different spices!  I would probably make a double batch (even triple).
