Papaya Daiquiri

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

I knowwwwwwww, I know. It's January.


And I'm making you a frozen Papaya Daiquiri.

What is UP with this weirdotron?

I can explain! About this time of year, I start to get the itch for spring. Now that the holidays are under our (expanded) belts, it's all I can do not to wear tube tops, flip flops, white nail polish and belt GOOD VIBRATIONS from the very busy snow cone stand in my head.

Did you know that papaya is actually really healthy? Ja! It's good for your skin, fertility, aging, wounds, digestion, etc. And with a shot of white rum in it? It ain't so bad for your soul.

If you don't want to freeze your face off, try this drink on the rocks instead. By that I mean, once you scoop out the flesh, muddle it instead of freezing and blending.

And if you need to sing Good Vibrations from the very busy snow cone stand in your head, I'll harmonize. Go!

Grab two papayas. Now, I'll tell you, these are smaller than what you'll normally find. But that's okay. Leaves room for more rum. OH, WHAT?

Papaya Daiquiris

Slice them in half and scoop out the seeds. Discard, or compost, or whatever.

Papaya Daiquiris

Using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out the flesh and dump into a bowl. Cover and stick in the freezer for about an hour.

Peek-a-boo! (sorry, my brain is weird today.)

In the meantime, make a simple syrup by dissolving sugar in hot water. Let cool to room temp.

Here's your syrup! Mine's never thick, but it still does the trick.

Squeeze some fresh lime juice.

Dump it all into a blender. Now, this amount is for 1 drink, but if you're making 4 frozen daiqs, you can blend everything at once.

Papaya Daiquiris

Voila: Papaya daiquiri for your mouth. Notice my husband went the rocks route. I stayed girlie.

Papaya Daiquiris

Good, Good, GOOD, Good Vibratiiiiooooonnnnnssss!
