Thin Mintini

Thin Mintini

It was sooo so nice here in Boston yesterday. It was 60 and sunny and the perfect preview to the spring I am desperately waiting to arrive. And yet, it’s cold again today with a bit of snow on it’s way.

UGH!!!!!

Anyway, this is the perfect recipe to perk anyone up who is bummed out about weather, work, a never ending to-do list, etc.

I had made a Samoa Cookie Cocktail last year and it became one of the most popular recipes on my blog last year. Clearly you guys like Girl Scout Cookies and booze! I don’t blame you since it’s a great combination.

Well, I’m here again with another Girl Scout Cookie cocktail!!!

One hundred and two years ago today was the first meeting of the Girl Scouts. So let’s celebrate with a Thin Mintini!

I hope you enjoy this bevie made of vodka, chocolate liqueur, creme de menthe liqueur, and some half and half. Give all of that a shake and you’re all set. Then just pour it into a glass garnished with crushed Thin Mint cookies.

You know you want this!
