Girl Scout Cookie Drink Recipe
Soo... I'm a fruity, girly drink lover.. Yup. Despite my vast coolness in other areas of my life, I'm just not cool in this particular area. I'll just never be a whiskey-swillin', beer-worshippin' good-time-gal. Of course I'll drink beer or whiskey... but if I had a choice, I'd rather plunk down money for a drink that tastes good and looks pretty, thankyouverymuch.
But why should "girl drinks" be considered uncool anyway? Isn't that a bit sexist? Whatever. I'm here reclaiming the term here today, and they're totes cool, and you can pry the pineapple-laden margarita glass from my cold, dead hands.
Enter the girl scout cookie! Obviously, the idea is that it tastes like a thin mint. If this sounds appetizing to you, then just follow the simple directions below...
Combine the following ingredients in a tumbler with ice:
4 oz cream
2 oz peppermint schnapps
2 oz Irish cream
2 oz cream de cacao
2 oz Kahlua
1 oz vodka
Shake, and serve!
Makes 3-4 drinks
Some additional notes:
The amount of vodka you put into it is alterable, and up to your preferences. I realize the ratio isn't that big in my version, but see... I favored the deliciousness of the drink over the alcoholic content. So although I did want a little zing, I didn't want the zing to be messin' with my delicious chocolatey, creamy flavors.
Also for funsies, I made both rocks and straight up versions! I guess you could also make them blended, but I don't care too much for frosty drinks. I found the rocks to be most satisfying for my taste :)
For the martini glass rim, I just crushed some cookies in a ziplock bag, wet the rim of the glass with Kahlua, and dipped the rim in the crushed cookies. I used Keebler Grasshoppers, but I do prefer original thin mints.
