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!
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
Shake well & pour ove ice in blender.
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.
