Pour the cherry brandy into demitasse cups (2 to 3 oz. capacity).
Add the vanilla ice cream.
Pour the coffee over the ice cream. If the ice cream settles to the bottom and there is more space for coffee, add more coffee.
Drizzle syrup over the coffee and ice cream, of you like. Me, I like.
Swirl the glass a few times and drink it up straight. Or use a dessert spoon to enjoy the watchamacallit more slowly.
