We still get people all the time asking why there's no worm in the mezcal. Indeed, if there's a worm in your mezcal, you've been duped by the oldest tourist trap in Mexico. The Gusano is a sign of BAD or rotten agave and it should never be in the bottle when you buy it. The way the Oaxacan's use the Gusano is to try it, crush it, and mix it with chili and salt. This exceptional condiment should be a staple of any solid bar and makes for an incredible addition to the kitchen as well. Dip an orange or mango slice in there and serve it with a shot of mezcal, adorn the rim of your favorite agave based cocktail with it, or simply sprinkle it over some fresh totopos before serving - you just can't go wrong.
