Ari Dyckovsky, who runs the account @KeepItCrafted, collaborated with Goza tequila and Toma Craft Cocktail Mixers to create this drink for a NYC charity event. It comes together quickly and can easily be batched.
Rimming the glass is optional but recommended, especially if you use sal de gusano, the umami-rich Oaxacan worm salt traditionally served with citrus and mezcal.
