These establishments are essentially like ice cream shops but instead of serving ice cream they have slushy machines filled with different varieties of pre-made frozen alcoholic daiquiri's. It is unfortunate that this trend has not caught on in the Northeast or in the Hamptons, because we can see it being a huge hit.

Regardless, the summer time is the perfect season to embrace the idea of frozen fruitilicious drinks, so enjoy today's recipe for a Fresh Papaya-Rum Daqiuri. Ingredients and directions, courtesy of iVillage, below...

INGREDIENTS:

3 oz. light rum

1 oz. coconut rum

Juice of 1/2 lime

3/4 c. chopped ripe papaya

1 c. ice cubes

2 slices star fruit, for garnish

DIRECTIONS: 1. Combine all of the ingredients except the ice cubes and star fruit in a blender and process until smooth. 2. Add the ice cubes and blend again. 3. Pour into chilled margarita or cocktail glasses and garnish with the star fruit. 4. Serve immediately.
