This week was a long week! It was a week where I spent a lot of time spinning my wheels, but not a lot of time getting anywhere. I was ready for the week-end. Most of all, I was ready for a TGIF cocktail! I came across this recipe on Cosmopolitan’s Pinterest account…I’m pretty sure I actually laughed out loud when I read the title.
This is a great cocktail for so many reasons: it is simple, comes together in a matter of seconds, and most of all, it tastes an awful lot like a Girl Guide (or Girl Scout for you Americans) thin mint cookie! A cocktail that tastes like a thin mint cookie = genius in my book…you already know how I feel about mint and chocolate.
With the holidays approaching, this drink also has a Christmassy vibe to it. You could try styling it with a candy cane for a Christmas party, and it would be the ultimate after-dinner drink at a dinner party or Christmas feast! Don’t forget to tell your guests the name of the drink…it is sure to get some laughs!
Happy week-end, everyone!
