Martini Monday: The Dirty Girl Scout

house etc 009

A month ago, my friend, Ellen, had a birthday. And we I celebrated it pretty hard. After weeks of being bombarded by Girl Scouts on the city streets, in front of grocery stores, and at work, and being gifted a box of thin mints, I went for it. In drink form.

After googling some recipes and doing some taste testing, we came up with the following recipe:

2 ounces vanilla vodka
1 ounce dark chocolate liqueur
1/2 ounce Crème de Menthe

You know the drill. Combine all the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake that bad boy up and pour yourself a Dirty Girl Scout. Garnish with a thin mint.

Note on the garnish – our cookies were frozen and shattered when we tried to cut out a sliver. I also think it would be bomb to crumble them up and rim the glass. Next time, friends. Because there will be a next time even though 3 of these suckers (and a couple vodka cran’s) gave me the worst hangover in years).
