Is it just me, or do cocktails taste better in the summertime? Don’t get me wrong: nothing beats a spiced up cocktail on a cold winter night. But yummy cool refreshing fruity cocktails when it’s hot out? Perfection. (An ice cold beer on a hot summer day is also perfection.)
This concoction requires three ingredients:
1-1 1/2 c papaya
1-2 shots Malibu
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix it all together. Yes… that’s a lot of Malibu in there. Don’t judge me; I was home for the night. Pour it into a glass over ice and garnish with a lime wedge. If you’re able, take it outside and enjoy it in the nice summer breeze.
Mmmmm…. rum… –Melissa
Oh yes!! I LOVE this! I am a huge fan of papaya. What I love about this is that the vitamins and good enzymes in the papaya basically guarantee you won’t get a hangover from this drink. Score!
This looks really good… my mouth is watering imagining the combination.
Sounds awesome! I love fresh papaya. Malibu is full of artificial flavorings, though. If you really want this to be awesome, may I suggest using actually good rum, such as Wray and Nephew. It wouldn’t have a coconut flavor, but there are ways around that.
Very good point, thank you for the suggestion!
