    Mimosa & Omelette

    Mimosa & Omelette

    Mimosa & Omlettes
    Brunch might be on your mind as you listen to this podcast episode. Ali Hassan & Marco talk about these Sunday staples. They both get very passionate as they talk about these two   
    A Sneak-Peek:
    [01:15] Marco & Ali get radically political off the top over a text on Omelettes . [2:30] Marco and Ali both don’t love the Mimosa. [4:42] Ali tells his Samosa story.[7:00] Mimosa and Mimosa like cocktails (see list below).[18:21] Omelette classic and modern (see list below).[38:28] Basil conversation.
    Favourite Quote:
    “No one wants to barf fizz” -Marco [3:49]
    “Don’t make me a Frittata and called it an Omelette…I’m not an a*****e” -Marco [21:08]
    “Not a bag of carrots that taste like wood or styrofoam” - Ali [34:04]
    Recipes:
    Classic mimosa:
    equal parts orange juice (freshly squeezed) and sparkling wine (Prosecco, Champagne or Cava) in a flute glass. OJ in first and then the prosecco (let gravity do the mixing) you can float half oz of triple sec onto to add more dimension. 
    Buck's Fizz
    two parts sparkling wine, to one part orange juice. Similar to the classic mimosa. Mimosa, which also contains champagne and orange juice, but in equal measures. Other
    Poinsettia Cocktail
    same as above with cranberry juice instead of orange juice. 
    Lemosa Cocktail 
    Same as above with lemonade instead of orange juice.
    Vermosa Cocktail  
    apple cider with champagne, served in Vermont, USA.
    St. Germain cocktail if you want the subtle flavour or elder flowers use St. Germain instead of OJ.
    Classic Omelette:
    3 eggs, kosher salt, ground white or black pepper, 1 tablespoon butter.
    Indian Omelette:
    onions, crushed cumin seeds, Chile seeds brown in veg or grape seed oil (not butter or olive oil). 2 eggs, cilantro, greens of green onions and salt and mixed up and added to our brown items.Ali will often add quarter of teaspoon of home made hot sauce. 
    Thai Omelette (Khai Jiaow):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnSsV5xAJIU
    Hassan Special Omelette:
    (good) carrots, garlic clove and shallots finely minced.Chives, salt cilantro to your egg mixture (don’t over mix). don’t over cook the carrots.

Amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This pod is so entertaining and they always choose drinks/food that are next level but uncomplicated. WARNING: you will be tempted to immediately go out and purchase a bartenders kit, Moka coffee maker, bitters you’ve never heard of and new things from the international food aisle. 😜

GREAT POD

This is the kind of podcast you are glad they have so many episodes because I have been devouring them (punn intended). The cocktails are fantastic, Marco & Ali's interplay is so great and the last segment, I look forward to every single time!

Entertaining!

Marco and Ali are great together, lots of witty banter while sharing their knowledge and obvious enjoyment of food and drink. Love that it’s also fresh and funny every time!
