Panty Ripper cocktail

“Last night I dreamt of San Pedro… It all seems like yesterday, not far away.

Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free.

This is where I long to drink, panty ripper cocktails!

The Panty Ripper is a real drink and might in fact be the Belize National Cocktail. I first discovered them at the Spindrift Hotel in San Pedro during the Thursday night Chicken Drop, where tourists bet on which number on a numbered grid a chicken will poop on.

This highball combines coconut rum with pineapple juice and tastes about as tropical as you can get. The drink goes down so easily, the concern is that you’ll keep downing them and evidently rip your panties at some point in the night while partying on the island (that never happened).

I was excited to see Panty Rippers on the menu at Caves Branch resort, which also serves the popular Bra Ripper cocktail (with coconut rum, pineapple juice and mango juice). No word on whether Madonna drank either ripper variation when she was on Ambergris Caye (a.k.a. La Isla Bonita).

The panty ripper cocktail is a favourite at the Thrsday night Chicken Drop in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, Belize.
