Papaya Margarita

This drink is awesome! Not too acidic, not too sugary with a little bit of salt on the rim…It’s the perfect cure for a gloomy Friday like today! You can also make it without alcohol and it will taste exactly the same.

Also, did you know that papaya seeds can be used to replace peppercorns? Check at the bottom of this post to learn how to do it!

TRANSFORMING PAPAYA SEEDS INTO PEPPERCORNS

Preheat the oven at 250. Rinse the seeds in cold water, get rid of the big chunks of papaya and spread them evenly in a baking tray. Bake for about an hour or until completely dried. You can then crush them with a pestle and mortar!
