Why Just Eat Your Girl Scout Cookies When You Can Add Some Alcohol and Drink Them As Shots?
As we told you last year in our Girl Scout Cookie beer and wine pairings post, the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas organization has really stepped up its game these past couple of years. From the implementation of online ordering and sidewalk sales to the introduction of gluten-free options, this crew is really outdoing itself these days.
And, naturally, we thought we should do the same. That’s why, this year, rather than just tell you which kinds of alcohol you should be drinking with each Girl Scout Cookie offering, we figured we’d just go ahead and show you how to turn your cookies into drinks themselves.
That’s right: Girl Scout Cookie shots.
Granted, making these may not earn you a mixology badge. But you’ll definitely earn a little notoriety with your friends for the effort. Plus, it’s just a fun thing to do — presuming you do it responsibly, of course.
