Thin Mint Cocktail

Is it pretentious to call a cookie a muse? Can a cookie be a muse?

Muse, inspiration, whatever you want to call it, DIY Cocktails made a cocktail based on the Girl Scout’s Thin Mint cookies. It. Is. Wonderful.

The Thin Mint Cocktail uses chocolate syrup—I used regular old Hershey’s chocolate–baileys, vodka, and fresh mint. It’s sweet, chocolatey, minty… plus it looks like chocolate milk. Enjoy it with some cookies, and you’ve got a great grown-up dessert on your hands.

Thin Mint Cocktail

Ingredients:

    1 ounce vodka
    1 1/2 ounce Baileys
    2 sprigs fresh mint
    1 Tablespoon chocolate syrup + garnish

Directions:

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint and vodka. Add the baileys and a tablespoon chocolate syrup (one longish squeeze). Add ice and shake. Taste. Add more chocolate, if desired, and shake again.

To garnish, add a bit of chocolate in the bottom of the cocktail glass (optional) and pour the drink over it. Enjoy!

Ooh, yes please! This may have to take the place of the boxes of thin mints that are rapidly disappearing from our cupboard… :)
