Papaya Margarita

 Sipping Saturday

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!

    It’s about 45 degrees here so I’m going to make one of these and pretend I’m at the beach and it’s 95. I’m just a tropical child!!

    Papayas in DC are hard to come by, sadly. I still think about the papaya I ate on vacation in Hawaii. (Four years ago.) It was Heh-VUN! Add tequila…yes, please!

    Oh Bonnie your endless supply of fruits for margaritas are surely gonna put in trouble. I wish I could drink the picture itself or lived nearby you. BTW strawberry margarita they were awesome and turned out to be party pleaser.

    I love papayas and know that I would love this. What do you do with the papaya seeds? Someone told me that they can be roasted?

    Bonnie, this margarita looks incredible! I love that you added papaya, too. My husband made me something very similar recently with muddled watermelon… It was like I died and went to heaven. Thank God for margarita season – It’s finally upon us!!
