A marocha is a woman with dark hair and smoky coloring; itâ€™s also slang for a party girl, the one whoâ€™s always going out and hitting the dance floor. This drink tastes how a marocha looks: earthy papaya (which becomes buttery when pureed) paired with smoky mezcal and brightened with orange juice. Itâ€™s also what a marocha might drink to get the night going.
2 shots papaya puree
1 shot smoky mezcal
Â¼ C. fresh orange juice
Pour the papaya puree into a glass, then fill the glass with ice. Add the mezcal and orange juice and stir well.
