Late afternoon sky,
Vienna at its Midsummer best -
it is 5 PM and you need a quick pick-me-up?
Everybody knows Tiramisù -
literally meaning pull-me-up -
the Italian coffee flavoured dessert,
but there is an even quicker way
to restore your energy level:
is the answer!
All you need is a shot of hot espresso
and a scoop of vanilla ice cream
happened at the venerable Antico Caffè Greco in Rome.
Caffè Viennese, as it is called there,
arrives at your table in a tall caffé latte glass,
filled with two scoops of vanilla ice cream,
one on top of the other,
in a double shot of hot espresso.
to better reach every last bit
of that slowly melting iced dream.
