Café Maria Theresa

Popular throughout Austria, this flavorful coffee is named for beloved Austrian empress Maria Theresa. And, this same recipe with a twist makes a Fiaker. That version, named for Vienna’s carriage drivers or fiakers, who need something warm to keep going in chilly weather, substitutes rum for the orange liqueur and omits the garnish.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp (4 g) sugar
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau)
  • 6 oz (177 ml) freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 Tbsp (7 g) whipped cream

Garnish

  • ½ tsp (1.5 g) orange zest
  • 1 tsp (2 g) chocolate shavings

Directions

Combine liqueur and sugar in a pre-heated serving cup; stir until sugar dissolves and add coffee.

Top with whipped cream, and add garnish.

  • Prep time: 5 minutes.
  • Makes 1 serving.
