I have a bottle of DeKuyper brand Tropical Papaya Liqueur but I am not sure what to make with it. Does anyone know of any cocktail recipes that use this? Thanks in advance for any help!

Yikes!!! That stuff looks radioactive. I would experiment with an amber rum and the juice of one lime and go from there. Maybe sneak in a bit of a light rum too (oz of each?). Let us know. I remember seeing a recipe for homemade somewhere. When I think of papayas, I think of lime and cayenne pepper. Good luck.

A lot of DeKuyper's liqueurs, schnapps and other novelty alcoholic flavorings are just plain nasty and have an evil chemically aftertaste. They have a Watermelon liqueur that immediately comes to mind.

Never had it, but the DeKuyper web site shows this recipe:
1 part Papaya liqueur
1 part Vodka
1/2 part Cranberry juice
1/2 part Grapefruit juice
Build over ice, stir, garnish with pineapple spear
