Uses for coffee syrup

I had leftover coffee, so I added sugar and cooked it down to a coffee-flavored simple syrup.
Now I’m looking for creative uses for it, other than sweetening my breakfast coffee...ideas? Suggestions?
Thanks!

My two immediate responses with little reflection would be A.) use in cocktails, or B.) ice cream topper.

I might have more ideas later.

make coffee jello using unflavored gelatin
coffee jello shot
Es alpukat https://www.epicurious... with reducing the coffee and sweet condensed milk
I'd think making coffee flavored bread would works as well (using it as sugar source)

You could make a coffee granita - more of a summer thing, but one of my favorites.

There's also a really good chocolate loaf cake recipe from Nigella Lawson, where you pour cocoa syrup over the top when it comes out of the oven - I think using coffee syrup would be excellent too: http://www.cookingchanneltv...

Thanks for all your suggestions! Since I added sugar, the syrup is about as sweet as maple syrup. I think the it might be too sweet for savory recipes and I’m not a big fan of sweet-and-sour combos (although I often have leftover coffee, so I’m saving those suggestions for another day).
But Coffee-tinis? We always make a flavored martini for Christmas Eve, so this year might be coffee!
I also do a lot of Holiday baking, so Nigella’s chocolate cake in mini-loaf pans just might appear on a fellow Food-52er’s doorstep next month...
