    I have a recipe for coco locos that I can't wait to try. It calls for papaya juice and my supermarket does not carry it. What type of store do you get this at? If I can't find it anywhere what would be a good substitution? Thanks!

    Did you look in the spannish section............Goya rice,beans etc?
    They sell small cans made by goya.

    Do you have Trader Joe's nearby? It's a national chain and the one in our area carries it.

    If you can't find papaya, try mango juice - also in the Mexican food section.

    If you have a "juicer machine", you could buy some papayas and make your own juice.

    I would add trying the organic section of your supermarket - sometimes they carry all these exocit necters :)

    Thanks everyone! I was looking in the juice section. I'll look in the mexican food section next time. Annette- here is the recipe:
    3c dark rum
    3c coconut rum
    2c cream of coconut
    2c papaya juice
    2c orange juice
    2c pineapple juice
    1c grenadine
    Shake well & pour ove ice in blender.

    Sounds great doesn't it?

    This is only my very honest opinion, others may have different tastes.

    BUT......canned, or tinned papaya juice tastes just that......tinny, metallic. It is one juice that does not can well.

    Better to peel and seed a papaya and pop it in your blender, then press it through a sieve for the juice, or as the above poster wrote, if you have a juicer.....make your own. I have had coco-locos and usually the pineapple taste is more than enough "fruit", the papaya could be a bit odd tasting. And, I do love papaya, just not in mixed drinks. Again, just my taste, others may differ.
