For the first time in a long time, I am at a loss for words. As it stands, there are only three words you need to read - tequila. snow. cones.
Papagayo is a new hotspot in Boston's trendy Fort Point neighborhood offering delicious Mexican food and a well-stocked tequila bar. I had heard rumors about the snow cones and just had to witness the icy deliciousness firsthand.
For only $12, you get four flavors, which do vary. At the time of my visit, the flavors were peach, raspberry, strawberry, and mango.
- Don't be Nervous. We all know the strength of tequila, but don't let that dissuade you from ordering. I handled all four, which are fairly petite, and polished them off without issue. Each serving is about 1.5 ounces of frozen tequila, fruit pieces, juice, and ice.
- Use a Scout. Papagayo is busy with the just after work crowd, so if you're planning to visit during the week, be sure to send a scout who can arrive a little earlier to either reserve a table or snag bar stools.
- Convenient Location. With South Station only a short walk away, there's no reason to skip that second cocktail.
