Mother Nature’s Pairing

Visit Mexico and order a pour of mezcal, very often you’ll find the drink is accompanied by two things: slices of orange and a little mound of sal de gusano, or worm salt. Worm salt is earthy and savory, and in combination with the citrus, creates a pairing that cuts right through the smoke, bringing forward the fruity and herbaceous characteristics of mezcal as you drink it slowly, in little ‘kisses’, as some mezcal aficionados call the tiny sips that can leave your lips puckered. Sal de gusano is also commonly used to season guacamole, salsas, cut fruit, eggs, ceviche, and more.
