Papayas are a delicious and fantastic fruit for you. It has all sorts of antioxidants and a tropical taste that makes you feel like sticking your toes in the sand and catching a wave. Over the next few days we’re going to explore a couple cocktails with them as the shining star. For a few reasons, one, I want a vacation. Two, I would really like to try a few different spirit bases. Thanks for coming along on the adventure!


Equipment: muddler, shaker, strainer, old fashioned glass or Collins glass

1 slice of fresh papaya (no seeds!)

½ oz agave nectar or honey

3 dashes Scrappy’s grapefruit bitters

1½ oz tequila

½ oz Averna amaro

½ oz pineapple juice

¾ oz fresh lime juice

slice of papaya to garnish


In shaker tin, combine slice of papaya, agave or honey, and bitters. Muddle gently to release mango juice. Add tequila, amaro, pineapple juice, and lime juice and top with ice. Shake for 20 seconds and strain into glass over fresh ice. Cheers!
