Autumn and I had the pleasure of visiting Belize back in May 2019, and it was an absolute island paradise - home to beautiful beaches, reefs for snorkeling/ scuba diving, dense jungles, Mayan ruins, caves for exploring, and so much more (see full blog post about our Belize trip here).
We also discovered one of our favorite simple tiki cocktails on the trip – the “Panty Ripper”. Yes, the name is a bit jarring, but the drink is a Belizean staple and an absolute “must try” cocktail.
The following feature will provide 2 versions of the recipe: The Wayward Spirits adaptation and the original recipe. Try it both ways and let us know what you think in the comments. Cheers!
Wayward Spirits Recipe:
Glassware: Preferably a Hurricane Glass
Combine all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth. Open pour into glass of your choice.
Garnish with a cocktail umbrella speared into 2 chunks of pineapple and a splash of grenadine
Glassware: Any glass will do
Combine all ingredients into a glass with ice, and swizzle with a bar spoon until mixed together.
Garnish with a splash of grenadine and a maraschino cherry
Wayward Spirits Rating and Twist:
Overall Score - 4.5
The “Panty Ripper” is a simple and delicious addition to any tiki cocktail book. It’s a real crowd pleaser, and easy cocktail to make in bulk for a tiki-themed party.
Personally, I prefer the Wayward Spirits version of the recipe, as it felt like the drink needed a more substantial rum to balance the flavor. Try it both ways and let us know what you think!
