More About This Recipe
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?
