It’s time for a Panty Ripper

Belize Panty Ripper Drink

Panti Ripa!

As you can see from the above sign, Belizeans have a good sense of humor. The photo was taken by Rebecca Coutant ( when she visited The Rum, Cigar and Coffee House in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Follow the link to check out all the cool stuff the shop has.

Would you like a Panty Ripper???

If you’ve never been to Belize, you’ve probably never heard that request (or maybe you have – you wild child). But wait, before you start making crazy assertions, let me clarify what’s a Panty Ripper. It’s one of Belize’s most popular cocktail, a sweet concoction of coconut rum and pineapple juice that is specifically tailored for women. Actually, guys equally love drinking Panty Rippers, but for whatever reason, they seem to not be too comfortable ordering it at the bar. I wonder why?

In case you’re wondering where this drink gets it’s name? I have no clue, its just been called that since anyone can remember. Here’s the recipe so you can try at home.


1 1/2 oz Coconut Rum
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1 splash of Grenadine syrup
1 cherry

Mix all the ingredients in a cup of ice and enjoy with a straw. Panty Rippers are great to enjoy in hot sunny days and if you’re either poolside or on the beach – that would be perfection.


Do you plan to try this Belizean drink recipe?

    These are WONDERFUL! Just got back from 2 weeks in San Pedro. My 3-yr old grand-daughter invented the non-alcoholic version of this while we were there – it’s called the Diaper Ripper!

Yet we also have some incredible Maya Ruins, underground caves, mountain tops and lush jungle that will provide that thrill and adventure that you seek.  The reality is that you can be climbing a Maya Ruin in the morning and by the afternoon you can be by the beach side drinking an ice cold beer or Panty Ripper!
