The temperatures are rising in my little corner of the world. Light meals followed by refreshing beverages are currently on our menu. Fresh fruit for breakfast, agua fresca and paletas are what we crave. Lucky me, our endless supply of fruit continues to fuel my margarita obsession. Today I share with you a papaya margarita. Enjoy! Sweet Life
Sunshine bright chunks of papaya are juiced then combined with tequila. Add a dash of lemon serve over ice for a thirst quenching Saturday margarita. Have great weekend!
