120ml water
200g granulated sugar
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
1/4 tsp ground ginger
240ml brewed espresso
240ml boiling water
240ml double cream
15g icing sugar
In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to low. Add the allspice, cinnamon, and ginger to the simple syrup and simmer for five mins. Take the pan off the heat and set aside.

To the 240ml of brewed espresso, add 240ml of boiling water. Pour 120ml of espresso into each of four (175 to 240ml) serving cups. Add two tablespoons of the spiced simple syrup to each cup and stir to combine.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the double cream until soft peaks form. Add the icing sugar and continue to beat until stiff. Top each cup of espresso with a dollop of whipped cream. Dust with cinnamon and serve.
