Eat & Drink


64. Screwdriver & Home Made Veggie Burger

Season 1, Ep. 64

Eat & Drink with Ali Hassan & Marco Timpano

Comedians Ali Hassan & Marco Timpano, discuss, lament & come to terms with Food & Drink. They bring over a quarter century of restaurant experience to the podcast table.

Today's episode Marco is alfresco making a simple, classic and fantastic cocktail and Ali tries to figure out what to call his wonderful burger creation.


Alex Guarnaschelli is a host and judge on several Food Network programmes and she's pretty great. We wanted to test her version of this simple cocktail. Did she build a better mousetrap? Listen and you'll hear.

1 orange, washed and cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds

0.5 oz of lemon,

Pinch kosher salt

2 oz ounces chilled vodka

5 cups chilled orange juice

1 cup crushed ice

Here we go, if you are like Marco you are going to spill and get sticky orange juice all over the place.

  1. Put the orange slices into a container of some sort, cocktail shaker if you got one.
  2. Add he lemon juice and the pinch of salt. 
  3. Use a muddler to "bruise" the orange slices so that the oil in the peels emerges and the pulp from the orange mixes with the lemon juice. 
  4. Add the vodka and continue to stir. (this a no shake cocktail)
  5. Add the orange juice and combine well.

Enjoy the perfect travellers cocktail.
