  2. In a medium saucepan, boil the espresso with the remaining 1 cup of sugar over moderately high heat until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups, about 10 minutes. Pour the syrup into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

  3. Scoop the ice milk into Champagne flutes and drizzle with espresso syrup. Garnish each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon
