Notes

As one New York fruit vendor said to me recently, “Ripeness of a papaya is a touch thing.” Softness is clearly the key to whether your papaya is ripe; it should be tender to the touch. When you do find a ripe papaya, try making this tasty cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice, plus 1 full-moon lime slice, for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar, or to taste
  • ¾ cup diced ripe papaya
  • ½ cup ice cubes

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients, except for the lime slice, in a blender, and process until smooth. Pour into a chilled wine glass, garnish with the lime slice, and serve immediately.
