Papaya and Coconut Margarita

by James Stevenson

Today I wanted to share something to lift your spirits in a tropical way! One of my favorite tropical delights is the papaya fruit. When I first saw it in my local market in Seattle I was somewhat intimated to buy it. What is up with those black seeds and what can I use it with. After I took a chance I realized that it can be used the same as a mango. It is so good in salads, as a snack, and in cocktails. The sweetness and juiciness of this fruit make it ideal for a tropical escape Margarita. Want to escape to the tropics? Try this Margarita, it will transport you to beach and sun no matter where you are located.
