When those sweet little Girl Scouts come out hawking slightly over-priced cookies for a good cause I always feel obliged to buy a few boxes. I'm from a scouting family so I feel it's my duty . . . oh, who am I kidding - I love the darned cookies, don't we all?
Anyway, those wonderful chocolate mint cookies inspired this fun martini which is a chocolate mint flavored martini.
No disrespect is meant to this honorable organization for which I have the highest respect. Though I was a Camp Fire Girl, my sister was a Girl Scout, my brother was a Boy Scout, my father worked for the Boy Scouts of America and my mother was a Den Mother. I just wanted to do a little fun twist on the Girl Scout Cookies I love. I also like the idea of drinking my cookies.
