Come on down, Come on down, It's (Boozy) Cookie Time…
Forget Christmas- it’s Girl Scout Cookie Season, the LEGIT most wonderful time of the year. And here’s why:
When you buy Girl Scout cookies, you’re helping provide new and unique experiences for girls to learn essential leadership skills. And while that’s more than enough of a reason why, the list keeps growing...
It no doubt calls to mind one of the best movies of all time- Troop Beverly Hills (“what a thrill!”) Thank you, Shelley Long, for bringing that movie into my life.
“It's khaki wishes and cookie dreams!”
3. Cookies cookies Tagalongs cookies Tagalongs more cookies Thin Mints are over-rated it’s all about the Tagalongs.
So sure, buy Girl Scout cookies (but not the Tagalongs, I call dibs) and support young women. But then, eat the cookies and celebrate the joys of being an adult. Here’s how…
Did I mention Tagalongs are everything? Blend them up with some ice cream and 1 (or 2, or 3…) shots of bourbon for everything times infinity and beyond.
Well I’ve eaten all the Tagalongs so let’s move on to Samoas. This caramel and toasted coconut-covered cookie takes on liquid form with caramel vodka, hot fudge, toasted coconut, and perfection.
The zesty lemon flavored cookies make for a perfect shaken, not stirred, martini with citron vodka, Cointreau and fresh lemon juice. Coat the rim with powdered sugar for the ultimate nod to the lovely Savannah.
I guess I can’t get through this post without sharing at least one Thin Mint-inspired booze-filled treat. Personally, I know Tagalongs kick Thin Mint’s butt any day of the week, but for the 99% of the world that doesn’t agree with me, here’s a chocolate cookie recipe that guest stars the Italian mint liqueur Branca Menta for a more adult-appropriate peppermint twist.
