Café Maria Theresia

This Viennese kaffeehaus specialty, named in honor of a Hapsburg ruler, raises espresso to fragrant heights with the addition of orange in not one but two ways. The coffee gets a jigger of orange liqueur, while a fragrant finish of grated orange zest crowns the thick whipped cream topping.Michael Kraus

With its lavish orange notes, this sophisticated coffee drink is a classic treat in Viennese coffee houses. This recipe first appeared in our Jan/Feb 2013 issue along with our article The World of Coffee.
