INGREDIENTS:

1 small Caribbean papaya, seeded, and chopped
½ cup water
1 cup crushed ice
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce agave nectar
2 ounces light rum
Sparking wine or club soda (optional) I like it without but my sister likes it with. You be the judge.
Lime wheel for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

Blend papaya in a blender with water to make the puree.

In a cocktail shaker combine ice, 2 ounces of papaya puree, lime juice, agave nectar, and rum. This is for just one cocktail but you have enough papaya puree for about 12 cocktails.

Serve in a glass over ice. If you want to add some fizz, add a splash of sparking wine or club soda. Garnish with a lime wheel.
