What are the best cocktails in Belize?
- Panty Ripper
This drink is a flavorful one that brings the party. Made with coconut rum and pineapple juice, this simple yet delicious cocktail is full of tropical tastes. It’s both sweet and refreshing, making it exceedingly easy to drink. Make sure you replenish with plenty of water in between rounds…these go down surprisingly easy!
The Cranbarrel is a simple drink for a reason…you need to taste the award-winning One Barrel Rum from Belize that is used to craft this cocktail. The dark rum is a perfect match for cranberry juice, which is how the drink got its name. Elegant, easy, and great for rum lovers, if you love cranberry juice as your mixer, choose the Cranbarrel to make your vacation merry and bright!
- Rum Punch
You’re bound to find rum punch everywhere, but in Belize, it’s done differently. That’s all due to that One Barrel Rum again. It’s iconic here, and hence, using any other rum for a rum punch in Belize is almost criminal. Along with orange, lime, pineapple, and grapefruit, this fruit punch really packs a punch in both flavors and strength. It’s the best way to kick off your vacation.
- Watermelon Daiquiri
If you prefer daiquiris after coming back in from that epic Belize adventure tour, then make it a watermelon daiquiri. It is made with frozen watermelon which gives it that incredibly refreshing quality. Along with some light rum, orange liqueur, and lime juice, this frozen libation is one of the best cocktails to have while in Belize.
There are many other flavors of daiquiri you can try too, like one made with dragon fruit. And if the usual flavors you love like strawberry or banana are more of what you’re craving, just say the word and you’ve got it!
- Rum Popo
If you’re visiting Belize around the December holidays, there’s no need to miss your eggnog. Just order a Rum Popo and you’ll be all set. This Belizean treasure dates back hundreds of years and is something the locals drink in celebration. You’ll get plenty of rum and nutmeg flavors in this rich and creamy drink. In all households in Belize, families have their own recipe that varies, but you can count on a few constants. For one, it will always be made with Belizean rum, and for another, it will always taste like heaven. Even if Christmas is a long way off, you can celebrate in any season with this magical and velvety drink!
Bonus Beverage: Belikin Beer
What if you’re vacationing in Belize and you aren’t a cocktail person? Then try the famed Belizean beer, Belikin Beer. They say it is brewed by Belizeans and for Belizeans, but visitors are always welcome to give it a try. This beer is best served ice cold in its renowned dark bottle. Come in from your activities and grab one at the bar at Jaguar Creek.
