Safari #60: Tequila Snow Cones

My silent prayer for a refreshing, frozen, alcoholic treat has finally been answered.

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.

My Tips:
  • 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.
