To finish our papaya adventure, we’re going into the land of gin. Definitely look for something on the drier side but really whatever your favorite is will work. All about those botanicals!
Equipment: muddler, shaker, strainer, white wine glass
2 slices of papaya
½ tsp demerara sugar
4 dashes Scrappy’s aromatic bitters
1½ oz gin
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
3 oz soda water
Slice of papaya for garnish
In shaker tin, combine 2 slices fresh papaya with sugar and bitters. Muddle until juice is expelled then add gin and lemon. Shake vigorously for 25 seconds and strain into wine glass. Top with soda water and garnish with slice of papaya. Cheers!
