The Bit by a Fox Podcast is now 7 months in, 29 episodes deep and just past that mid-season mark. There is no better time than now to introduce listeners to the producer, editor, gorgeous eccentric, and lovable Swede who helps to make this all happen every week, Anna Tivell.
I've truly enjoyed getting to know Anna this past year and I know you will too. She has such an interesting perspective on drinking based on her Swedish upbringing and her experience living in Iceland for a number of years where there was a prohibition of beer up until 1989. She drank moonshine as a kid, but now drinks very little. Her journey with alcohol has been a fascinating one.

Our featured cocktail for this episode is from Anna and her husband Billy's popular LA restaurant, Salazar. It is one of my favorite summer cocktails, The Paloma. This mezcal version is one of the best I've ever had:

Salazar Paloma
2oz. Mezcal 
2 oz. Fresh grapefruit juice 
3/4 oz. Fresh lime juice 
3/4 oz. Agave nectar 
Pinch of salt
Bar spoon of habanero tincture

Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake until well chilled. 
Strain into a Collins glass with chile lip
Add 2 oz grapefruit soda
Top with crushed ice and grapefruit wedge garnish
