Papaya Smash Cocktail

Posted by nick musica on

Once you try this refreshing cocktail, you'll want it all the time. The papaya transports you directly to a tropical, sandy beach while still delivering the familiarity of a margarita. This is one cocktail you won't want to miss this summer.

This is perfect for any occasion: sitting out by the pool, a barbeque with your favorite people, alongside a spicy dish or just hanging out.
