Walk by your local grocery store and you’ll see it – a handful of girls in green vests selling one of the only truly wonderful gifts that the wintery months have to offer. Girl Scout Cookies.
Maybe you’re a Thin Mint guy, or you prefer a classic shortbread. No matter what, we can guarantee you’re going to need to wash down those crumbs with something alcohol-y.
So here’s a quick and easy guide to what to pick up at the liquor store after you buy a box of cookies out front:
Thin Mints – Stout with chocolate notes
These chocolatey pieces of heaven are at the top of the list for a reason. They’re a DIA favorite and deserve to be paired with something worthy of their company. A chocolate stout will let the taste of your Thin Mint linger in your mouth longer than your fillings are comfortable with. And it will be glorious.
Tagalongs – Bourbon (with peanut notes if you can find one – try Johnny Drum)
These are the chocolate/peanut butter ones. The ones you settle for if the girls are out of Thin Mints. Paired with the right bourbon they’ll taste like a first choice.
Samoas – Dessert wine
Caramel, Coconut, Chocolate. You’d be crazy not to pair all of these flavors with a port.
Trefoils – Champagne
The vanilla taste of a shortbread cookie mixed with the bubbly goodness of champagne is reason enough to celebrate.
